What do you do when getting your car ready for winter?

Well its about that time, when our highs during the day now are about 40* and when I wake up for work they are in the teens-20s... Im going to store the car, but its too cold blooded as is, so here is what I plan on doing

Changing the Penn 20/50 to a Penn 5/30, dropping the E85 tune and for the first time ever in this car, going to a 93 pump tune. Then just dropping the boost box to 15 psi in all gears.. Is there anything you guys use in cold weather as far as additives or anything? I wont be driving it in the winter, but waking this thing up in the mornings is a bear...

Turbo / TB - AGP Zeta 3.0 / 28 psi , AGP bfmic, Boomba 70mm tb Engine - Wiseco 8.8:1 pistons .020 over , eagle h-beam rods , king main and rod bearings , DCR crank strap kit, Head - FnF race ported exh ports , +2mm rev exh valves , BC springs and Ti retianers , BC stage 4 cams (280*s) , Boomba cam gears,
Fuel - , 900cc fic inj , -6an feed and return lines , fuel pump rewire , bottle neck fix , Bosch 044 intank , aeromotive rrfpr , E85..

"I'm betting that when the USS GG is commissioned, it will be notably slower than the rest of the fleet, list slightly to one side, and tend to turn gently to port while attempting to sail on a direct heading."
I'm SO going to hell for how hard I laughed at that.
