    cold weather

    Just wondering if there are any concerns with running in cold weather. What i mean is will it, can it hurt my engine? It's getting colder up here now and I like to run this time of year. Will running in 40' temperatures be ok?

    Nothing wrong on closed loop, just be sure to get oil warmed up. (No experience with open loop)
    Now, your motor is going to run leaner so you do need to be able to adjust for that if possible. Not so much an issue on stock ski

    Most the time when folks with moded motor have issue with cold weather is lean burning up exhaust bell or even worse the pistons.

    Do the mods in my signature require adjusting my fuel? If so I guess I will need a RRFPR.

    I've heard of exhaust bell issues in cold with 42s and 10 psi boost.

    No I have no way of checking. I have no idea our altitude here but it's not high. Definately closer to sea level.

    Pick up a set of 48s or get rrfpr/innovate afr setup to be safe. Our motors are expensive.
    48s prob easier and u can use when u upgrade to riva ecu.

    I was in the lake last Sunday and was 59'. I was thinking the cold air would be the problem not the water.
