That sounds like another decent way to get the 3rd bolt out.
Today it was -10C this morning and I didn't plug it in. Fired right up, no hesitation. I'm not use to this strange car actually starts when I turn the key sensation.
I've noticed it now idles less then 1000 RPM'* steady, but occaisionally it gets a little jumpy. Is this something I should expect? Also, I was wondering if my speed to RPM ratio is a little high. It'* at 1500RPM holding 50km/h (31mph) steady, and 2000RPM holding 70km/h (44mph) steady. These numbers havn't changed alot since the mod, I'm just curious.
And for the smoke...I just figured it was some crud on the manifold or perhaps a little bit of snow or something.
Next on the list for repairs is the O2 sensor...and getting one of them fancy STB.
