Wouldn't that qualify as understanding social situations?

it will only warm up properly if you keep an ELH in the trunk, so every morning before starting jack up the car remove the OE header and put the ELH on....start car....shut it off again...reinstall the OEM UELH...and your ready for a day of driving. Repeat each morning or if the engine has sat long enough to fully cool off.

I normally let it idle long enough for it to rev down. When I start my car cold the idle shoots up to between 1500 and 2000 depending on how cold it is outside, like most cars, and I usually let it rev down to about 1200 or 1000, takes two or three minutes then you're good. Just be easy on your throttle and you'll be fine.

but seriously....its ideal for the drivetrain to warm up in unison, in other words start the car, let it run for a minute, then drive it, the engine trans diffs etc will all warm up in unison.

You can't be serious w/a troll post. Just ask shagfag. Now he's pissed at you too. Better watch out!

So what in his post history suggests this was a troll post? He seems to be fairly serious about most things, and with barely a hundred posts over the past year and a half isn't given to running nonsense posts up the flagpole.





but fwiw I did have my suspicions because I saw a similar post on some non-Subie forum a couple of days ago.

If you live right next to a highway entrance, take secondary roads to the next exit. There's zero reason to idle for minutes before driving. 2 songs? What if the first one is Iron Butterfly In A Gadda Da Vita and next is Freebird?
I think hes okay with just Freebird, TBH. But IAGDV AND Dazed and Confused live, oh boy! Ring land failure for sure!
