For those that are familiar with inline coolant heaters (as apposed to block heaters), is anyone aware of any reason why you can't use an circulating coolant heater on the MS6? The block heater install on this car is expensive and I'm trying to find a less expensive option. Appreciate the feedback

i cant see a reason why not. i would do it in the upper radiator hose too being it so simple to access day in and day out.

Did you end up installing the coolant heater in your Speed6? The block heater is very expensive and I'm considering the coolant heater option as well.

I went with a oil pan heater that's worked well so far. Welcome to Canadian Polar Pad There's also another of the same type of unit that i've seen advertised in The States but I can't remember the name. It's on the forums here somewhere.
