    New to HSV

    Hey fellas, just picked up my 2008 VE Maloo ute. Cam, OTR, 6 speed man, walkinshaw exhaust ,sounds awesome!

    One issues I am having is on cold start it won't idle, I have to keep the revs up until it gets warm then it runs fine once warmed up. Someone told me to get it retuned, my question is why do they go out of tune?

    The car may not have been tuned well to start with. Since you don't know the history of the car/tune, I would be taking it to your local reputable LS tuner to get the tune looked at

    As said, it wouldn't have lost its tune, it just wasn't tuned properly to begin with.

    It will generally run a few different parameters until it warms up (80 or there abouts). It can be difficult to get this aspect right, especially when some tuners don't even keep the car overnight to work on the cold start!

    That's one thing he did mention, he wants it overnight for a cold start.

    My Holden dealer did mine, mechanics will have a carbon cleaner, it's an machine that pumps gas similar to nitromethane through the engine in a controlled amount.
