I'm excited to be a part of the forum and wanted to make my first post, so...... I was wondering if anyone else has had slow/spotty startups with a maggied engine? I live in AZ so I don't think cold weather should be a factor. Anyone else experienced this?

Yup, a little bit here. Don't notice maybe as much as others since I have to drive 0.6 miles before I can go over 25 MPH (neighborhood speed limit). After that, it acts slightly lean till warm. At that point, throttle response is as rapid as you'd ever want.

No problems with cold start, It works all the time - Just the belt needs to warm up a bit to get the most of it. I am in VA

Isn't Balky the guy from Perfect Strangers?

When I saw this thread, I thought that we had a celebrity among us.

I got no problem with it starting.

As for trading, I don't think so.......

Selling, maybe.

Thanks for all the responses! Well, I'm not too worried about it, I think rand49er said it best. It just runs a little off, probably lean from the extra air shoved in there, for about a quarter mile and then its back and rumbling the right way.
It also could have something to do with the previous owner not having it properly tuned, which is something I'm interested in checking. The warning light has come on before and the problem was found to be the sensor picking up too lean of a mixture which is explained by the charger.

Jweymar, what kind of results did you get from the dyno tune? What kind of Hp and torque gains did you see? How much did you pay? Did you ever have the sensor problem before you got it tuned? What mods do you have and what kind of numbers were you putting down on the dyno?

Im just full of questions!
