Coolant heaters
 
Hey I am wondering if anyone out there has installed a coolant heater on their Ecoboosts? I have hear the installation of one makes starting on cold mornings (like january in northern saskatchewan) much easier on the motor. I treat this truck better than a child and want to make she runs string for years to come
sure the engine

Are you thinking block heater that goes into the soft plug ?

I would guess that you should already have one if it was a norther order ?

Yeah it should have a block heater stock, I'd look into a recirc heater but I don't know off hand how the hoses run on these. My 94 IDIT Ford had a line from the bottom of the rad to the heater core, perfect spot to just plop in a 1500w heater, I could run the blower motor without the engine on and have heat. If you have a block heater I'd look into a pan heater to get the oil flowing sooner, and use synthetic.

I always use full synthetic but the recirc heater is what I am primarily interested in
