The only thing that has really changed is that I have been using rev matching and engine braking a lot more. Also, I've been running the engine a little faster when it's still cold, so that my O2 sensor gets to temp as soon as possible. The engine and all gets to normal temp is under 2 minutes now, and I shift to a higher gear. Not sure what the effect of each component of change is.
Remember this, you car is going to run rich before the O2 sensor heats up and the thermostat kicks.
