yeah C-Diddy IM'ed me and saud this:
"Gotta call today. They didn't get to it until late, but they think its the head gasket or maybe even a cracked head. Rip down tomorrow under warrenty. Good luck with yours. "

Ok. Maybe the head gasket, i truly doubt that its a cracked head. I think i would have other problems than running rich when i idle for 5 minutes. But if thats all a cracked head is doing, wow
