The first time I read that in my owners manual I figured it was a license to mis-behave. Supposed to blast out any accumulated condensation, prevent corrosion I guess.

I always crank my car up to full boost in 1st gear as soon as I leave the driveway. Got maybe 100 yards before the first problem! Neighbors, kids, dogs, cats, cops be I come
