Quicker warm up question and driving a cold engine
I have an '87 YJ with a 258 and a recently rebuilt Carter carb. I have done the TR upgrade and installed the MSD ignition. I was just curious if there are any upgrades to do that speed up the warming of the engine process. The jeep drives very nicely and idles well if I let it warm up at high idle for 7-10 minutes. If I start to drive before then, I pay for it the whole trip. It won't idle so well and sounds terrible, even after it warms up. Anything to do to have it warm up quicker? I have a Weber that I will be installing after tax season, I am an accountant. Will that speed things up at all. Thanks for all the advice in advance. Also, is it harming the engine or tranny in any way by driving it before it is fully warmed up?
