A normal one is for a 4 cylinder though and I have 10
The goal is to warm the oil that's in the crankcase, not warm the entire block. Once you start the car and that oil circulates and everything warms to operating temp much faster.

Keep in mind they make them for all different applications, but the footprint really isn't that much different. We have them on everything from GM V8's to 7.3L Powerstroke Diesel V8's, to two cylinder mowers and other types of heavy equipment.

The good thing about buying this car is that it came on new winter tires so I'm already set for the next 16 seasons or so. I do need to refurbish the bushings though.

K I bought it. Bezos arrives on Monday to personally deliver it. I'll have to get the damn skid plate off to install it unfortunately.

If there's any oil or crud on the pan you're obviously going to have to clean it really good and let it dry before applying it. But it should help out quite a bit. If nothing else you'll have the piece of mind knowing your oil is up to temp and you're not destroying the inside of your motor.

Well it could also burn the entire car down and I won't be able to submit a claim because of this conversation.
