Yea, it wasn't on these boards, but on some other site, someone said if you don't hit 6k regularly your battery never properly charges, or something along those lines.

The myth of idling a car for it to warm up is prior to fuel injection. As others have said you do more damage than good letting it idle. Instead drive it a low rpm until it warms up completely.

I normally use the middle bars on the temp gauge as my 'safe zone' where I can drive normally, which I think are from 180 to 230? or something like that. Until it's hit 180F I don't use more than 50% throttle and keep RPMs below 4k.

The battery stuff is nonsense, haha. Someone was pulling your leg or otherwise being a douchecanoe.

Yea that's more or less what I do now.


LOL that battery stuff was just a convo in a thread I was reading, I wasn't a poster on those boards.
