I don't think there's much point in warming up your engine for that amount of time for its own sake.. Especially in the kind of temperatures we can get in this area during the winter, the engine will...

A small amount of pinging is not going to damage the engine. If it is happening constantly then it's a problem. The stories about pinging putting holes in pistons are likely from high-compression,...
