1. Air being pumped to cat to warm it up quicker.
2. Reconnect your battery then everything will work great for a few days.... and then you reconnect your battery again :p
3. Could be a number of things, I use to have some slow starts of 4-5seconds but I cleaned throttle body/MAF and it has been doing consistent starts since.
4. I've noticed that occasionally but never really bothered looking into it.. the most I ever did was checking out the front flex disc which apparently is a common problem potentially related to that.
