When the motor is cold?

How far down does the throttle go? I hear people saying to take it easy when cold but how easy do you folks take it? I will say mine goes only 1/4 the way at most until it warms up to temp, then all heck breaks loose.

Yeah, me too. for some reason, it seems my foot has a hard time pushing on it when cold, and I am all tensed up. Who knows, I just wondered what everyone else was doing.

If I absolutely have to go before it's warm I keep it nice and easy, tensed up like you. But for the most part I try not to leave the house until she's been idling for at least a few minutes

Me too. I always let it warm up for a while before I drive, but this is a 6.0 we're talking about. I don't have an hour and a half to wait for it to warm up completely

I stay under 2k rpm till she's warm. Usually try not to leave until my EOT is at least 80-90 though.

I start mine and drive after 30 seconds or so even in the winter months. I just try not to take it over 2000 rpm until she is warmed up some. I won't full throttle it until it is fully warm.

It warms up a hell of alot faster driving it nicely than idling it for ever.

When all else fails, high idle mod. Truck is blowing hot air out the vents in 3 minutes flat and temp is usually around 130ish.

I've got a buddy that will dog his car anytime/any temp. Blows me away but he's got 250k on his car with no real issues besides the normal stuff.

I'm not going to chance it, I always let mine warm up and I never hammer on any of mine. I have pushed all of them from time to time (WOT runs) but it was a controlled throttle up and not slammed to the floor.
