I was stripping down a blown to hell EJ25D for bolts and such, and discovered that it had a factory OEM block heater. Works like a charm too.

My franky has a bit of cold start piston slap, I don't live in a very cold climate (lowest it gets here is teens) but I was wondering if running the heater for about an hour in the mornings might mitigate the cold starting issues?

Thoughts?

(If I'm barking up the wrong tree, I'd be happy to sell the heater to one of you Canucks)

Well fine then. I guess I'll install it and see what I get for results.

just out of curiosity, where on the block does the element live? I found the plug in for the heater a few weeks back when I was putting a headlamp bulb in my 97 legacy just never traced it anywhere.
