Cold Start on VW Drag Engine without touching throttle.

Been working here and there on getting the cold startup settings dialed in on my drag engine. Takes a while when you get one shot each morning between changes. Engine is a 2276cc, FK-89, 48x38 Comp Eliminator heads, 12.5:1 CR, running 91 pump gas with Megasquirt 3 for crankfired ignition and coil-on-plug ignition. Intake system is a home-brew built by me. It works well at keeping intake air temps ambient and has introduced a lot more low end torque than I had with the ITB's that were on there before. Overnight low was 35 degrees, but the car/engine only cooled down to 43-44 degrees overnight. Was hoping for a sub freezing night, but will have to wait until next fall it looks like.
