Default Temp corrections - NEEDED

My warm ups are screwed. Lean like 17.1 afr's, and then good a after warm up.

I am going to study the manual again.

Any tips guys? Or do I just have to save a map for warm weather and a map for cold weather?
Thanks.

sounds like you just need to adjust your warmup enrichments.

Weeeeell. Hahaha. I wish I could fix that for ya. Hahahaa.

One thing 10 is better than 18. !LOL!

I may be wronge, but I don't think you would hurt anything around 12-13.
10 would probably be rough on your plugs.
But a second opinion is needed.

It doesn't matter where you warm up as long as the engine is running and you are not at the extremes of air fuel ratios.

But...

I have ran warmup at 14:1, and I have ran warmup at 12:1.

The only difference is that at 14:1, I couldnt get the car out of the garage. The engine dies with the slightest bit of load. At 12:1, the car makes it out of the garage on its own power.

OK so there is
After start warmup enrichment settings

and Warmup Wizard.

I went through WW and did the 100, 110, etc. etc.

Is there anything I need to do to After start warmup enrichment settings?

Or is there anything else I need to do?

Thanks!

You will know only after you get the engine started. After start is what gets the engine stabilized between cranking and running.
