I don't know about the rest of you guys, but I personally LOVE the rough idle at start up. It sounds like such a monster when it fires up from a cold start. For the first 30 seconds it's a beast. I love people turning around to look at it when they walk by as it's roaring to life. I'll take the rough idle anyday for that sound.
