Idling does not help much for warming up. Just drive a while without getting into boost after the start up.
Gotcha, when I was driving on the road, I was not hitting boost at all, it just happened to die right when I barely made contact with the accelerator shifting from second to third.

I always let the car warm up before hitting boost, so I think it might have been more along the lines of me not waiting long enough for the car to complete its warm up sequence.

Thanks for the help and input everyone, happy holidays :cheers:
