Hmm Started up the car at 1am and it ran extremely poorly, til it cycled a few times, as if it was going less then 100 rpms if thats possible. but 10 seconds later it ran normal. So far ive driven it roughly 1100 miles so there should be no old gas, ive ran a chevron/techron Fuel system cleaner and have been using Lucasoil Fuel injector cleaners per tank.

It seems with the colder temperatures it gets harder to start. But once the engine warms it runs about normal for it.

It also seems to run better in the warmer days.

Saturday ill set time aside to pull apart the Intake and See if i can clean/shed light on something.
