Forty degrees is not cold so your truck should warm up just fine on your way to work.

I don't plug mine in until it hits somewhere near 20-25 degrees.

And the whole neighborhood thing...they should be up already lol

I hear ya about the straight pipe. I have the 03 turbo on my rig AND straight piped! Also have a Harley and a Ranger that has no exhaust temporaly.

At 40* wouldn't worry about it too much yet. I fire mine up and just drive easy for the first 5-10 minutes.

When the temps hit 35ish and below is when I plug mine in. Don't really have to, but I like the easier starts.
