The traditional Winter setup:
  • Move the intake source to warmer air from the exhaust manifold
  • Additional/lengthened use of the EBH
  • Rad block + possible partial undertray
  • Change the transmission fluid (transitioning to synth)
  • I leave the tire pressure the same @ 50 PSI (only problem has been black ice -- but what tire can handle that?)
  • Warmer clothing to allow full operating temp before heater demand (touchy TC lockup based on temps)

I may have to add a new batt to the list...
