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.

First Dyno trip,
normal amount of teething issues with a brand new motor. Mainly a
converter that kept the wheels from catching up with the motor. Once
that's figured out we'll post up some new numbers!

This is a little rig we built for PRI 2011 that the showgoers loved! This
is a preview late one night after putting in the hours to make it happen in
time for the show. This is running a MegaSquirt-3 EMS and 8 IGN-1 Ignition
Coils. The spark plugs are modified to create a huge spark plug gap to add
more awesome to the project.

Rod's Locost 5.0 - Cold Start MSII w/IAC
Cold start, about 40F. Its getting there, but still a lot of tuning to do.
Need to turn down the idle air control a notch. Its using a Jeep IAC
