Nothing to be worried about, it's just like taking a cold beer out of the cooler on a hot summer day. Your pushing warm air through cold pipes and that is going to cause them to sweat. After you drive it and everything is up to temp it should go away depending on how cold/humid it is. My 7.3 and 6.0 would both do this in AK when it was cold out.

Are you from AK? Or just stationed up there? Where at?

I grew up in Eagle River. Miss it more every day I'm away. < 8 years until I retire and can move back

Originally from Seattle area but got stationed at Elmo in 2005 and bought a house in Palmer so that is where we call home now. I'm "Outside" right now in Bangkok Thailand but PCSing to Eglin AFB Florida in July. I'll be retiring next Jul and then we are moving back to our place in Palmer. Can't wait!
