EVO 8/9 Block Heater Install

I used a KATs 13080 Engine block heater, drilled and tapped a couple holes in the frame just in front of the transmission:

Welded 10AN bung into the bottom of my radiator for the heater feed line.

NOTE the oil pan pad style heater that didn't work worth [email protected]

Used a dorman 'T' to connect back into the cooling system at the heater hose

This setup works awesome Switched on at 3am via a timer, my car is at 120 degrees when I leave for work at 5am. On cold days it makes a huge difference on scraping ice, start the car, turn defrosters on high and the ice just about falls off by the time I get outside with a scraper.
