The 86/BRZ is sensitive to power changes of about 0.7HP per 1℃ of intake air temperature. Reason is because air is more dense in colder temperatures. It was measured in the past.

It makes sense if you are using a stock thermostat. You need to use an aftermarket thermostat and adjust also the ECU to start the fans in a lower temperature.
