I have one, but sadly they don't take much pride in their work. The Broadway store has poor customer service and there is only one guy at the fairview store that will touch my car. He or the alignment rack is hit or miss because I've noticed visible differences between the printed out results and what was actually done to the car.

Can anyone hook a fellow Boise Suby owner up with some NWIC stickers?

Not I. I take my car to the dealer for oil changes and use Rotella in my bike.

Maybe check with the guy that owns Moto One in Meridian. It a dirt bike shop but the owner is a good dude and he might be able to get it. Tell him one of the guys from BoiseRiders.net sent you.

I installed an engine block heater with the hopes it would help with cold starts using e85. Even in my garage where it hovers around 50*F, it takes 10-15 turns of the key to get it to start. Well, after leaving it plugged in over night last night, it started up on the first try. On top of that, coolant temps upon start up were at 108*F, totally by passing the cold start cycle which wastes tons of fuel. Couldn't be happier.

So, if you're running e85 and having troubles with cold starts, I highly recommend an engine block heater. I put mine on a timer too so that it kicks on 2-3 hours before I leave for work, just so I'm not wasting electricity.

Into the block, between the thermostat housing and driver's side engine mount. You may have to remove your exhaust header to get to it depending how it's routed.
