Well, you are onto something Hustler. Took out the plugs, they were black as sin - and they were a new set no less.

Threw in another new set of plugs, let's see what this log of TEH DRIVINGS reveals.

Threw in a new set of plugs that were a heat range colder. At first, it idled like ***, harsh vibration, that sort of thing.

Took it for three drives, all of which I have logs provided.

At the final drive, it was purring like a kitten. With plugs that were cold enough to make it idle super-shittily before, and not only that, but I was able to time it no problem. Granted, my AFRs were still bouncing a bit, but that just seems weird.

Apparently, I can't let it warm up via idling, I just need to drive the **** out of it.

My best guess is the issue is twofold, because cold start sucks *** still even with the brand new plugs.

The first issue was that idling, well, fouled plugs. Which is insane, considering I had a brand new plug come out of there looking like it was sitting in a chimney for years after idling for ~30 minutes while trying to set timing.

The second? I have a serious cold start issue. A serious, serious cold start issue that makes it idle horrible untill I actually drive it. Future hot starts gave me no hiccups, and I just restarted it as I am typing this. It purrs like a kitten on hot starts, hot starts are perfect.

No really "bad" just the reality of not running sequential.

I must be blind, as I cannot find this setting in tunerstudio. Can you point me in the right direction? After reading the reasoning to make the change, I want to make sure I have it where it needs to be.

Thanks,

Jason
