I agree with Drifter. But I should also note that 75% of all wear on an engine occurs from driving short distances on a cold engine (this has nothing to do with the 180 Thermostat recommended by the club members). What I mean is that if you jump in your car and drive 10 miles, your engine hasn't warmed up enough to prevent excess wear. I would suggest (particularly in those cold Ontario winter days) that you warm up your car for a few minutes before you drive it. this lets all internal components expand to operating specs, allows your engine oil, supercharger oil, and tranny fluid to warm up--coating all parts and reaching optimal viscosity, and has the added benifit of warming up your interior (comfort only--nothing to do with wear and tear). Keep in mind that a warmed up car will have oil where it needs, at the viscosity it needs--thus reducing unnecessary wear and friction.
Even with long trips planned, warm it up first!
