Yeh any more than 30 mins should do it ... 10mins might be too short ..ive tried that before, might have been 15 mins and didnt feel like it had properly cleared everything.

with air con on it just puts strain on engine as with D and air con which makes it idle a bit lower and hunt and stuff but if u do that imo it allows for a quicker idle quality especially after getting a cam done.
