    I've got mine bypassed right now. It's a little cold out (Close to 0deg Centigrade) so I just have to feather the throttle until it warms up.

    I've bypassed the coolant to the TB as well. It seems to work alright once the engine gets warmed up a bit.

    EDIT: If you want I'll take some pictures when I get home.
