When the motor is cold and the blower is cold there is additional drag on the motor during a cold start. To help keep a proper idle during cold starts in cold weather regions where it takes vehicles longer to warm up we suggest to keep the cold start feature active on our SC vehicles. Our cold start on our SC file is not the same as stock, it is a modified version designed to help keep a slightly higher idle. In moderate weather regions it is not as much of an issue. You can get cold start removed on our SC software if you really want it.
