Warming Up and Cooling Down
** EDIT: sorry for errors in this essay **
Ok I searched very quickly but found nothing...
So me and a few buddies were driving after working on a deck this past sat. and I have a stock 04 powerstroke auto 2wd he has a stock 05 cummins 6 speed 4x4. Of course we decide to race and I destroy him I beleive because of his shifting skillz. Now we were just going up the road and I had it at WOT for maybe a 1/2 mile, I pull into chick-fl-a and let it cool down for a couple minutes and here is where the arguement starts...
I always let my truck warm up or I'm super easy on it for a little bit, as well as let her cool down for a few minutes before I turn her off.
The cummins guys turns her on drives right away shuts her off right away.
We discussed the turbo and engine, how can it get much hotter even after a little wot, as well as warming up and cooling it down before shutting off.
Does anyone have factual information to put it to a rest.
