Hi Folks

A pressure accumulator with either a manual or electric solenoid operated
valve would probably work. Has anyone used one of these for an Audi?
 It seems like a good way to prolong engine life, you could use it everytime
you do a cold start. 

Also, along the same line of thought, anybody know what kind of pressure
"the Bomb"  works under, and if it has a diaphram or piston? 
Or is it simply a gas over oil type?
