The cold thing, it seems the same for me as well. When it was -30celcius it seemed to have more power, coulda just been me. Or maybe there is an explanation?
And the hosing off the engine, you should cover the battery and stuff with a plastic bag or something. I believe in the manual for your truck there is a Cleaning section which says what components are sensitive to cleaning. I would avoid using high pressure, don't want to force water into parts it really shouldn't go. I'm sure there is more stuff, but that's what I know.
