if I am not mistaken that is the code for the engine temp sensor, it kind of works as a choke, it tell the computer the ngine temp so it can lean out the fuel mix. I think the code says engine is taking too long to warm up. A faulty sensor will read -40 C all the time

When I was building my 97 GSX, I ran into this same problem. I found that I had a bad vacuum leak. Of course, this was after I had done a tune up, changed the fuel pump, injectors, etc.
Let it warm up without driving. Set you idle a little higher by adjusting the idle screw on the throttle body to about 2500 or so. If it does the same while sitting then you can start checking for leaks. Acquire a can of starter fluid from your local auto store. Spray in different areas, short burst (DO NOT blanket the engine area) around the engine compartment, 1 at a time. If the idle changes then returns that is the rough area of the leak. Look around that area and see what it could be. Then you can start fixing the problem.
If not then you will need to get a vacuum tester. You can rent them (Autozone, Advance Auto, NAPA) or find a shop (though that would cost you more) that could check it for you.Follow the directions on the tester.
