Here's my baby, at 16*, after sitting for 36 hours. No drama here :D

That is great! I had a Mercedes diesel some years back, and anything under 35 degrees, and it would not even think about starting. Did not have a block heater on it though. Loved that car, just could not kill it otherwise. I would like to have a diesel truck some day.

That thing is pretty smooth for a cold start. My old 7.3 powerstroke would shake, rattle and roll on a 15 degree morning lol.

It's a little worse when the temps are at 0*, but the block heater works great! I tried it out for the first time last week.

haha You would love the snow, Quade! It's just a big excuse to do a lot of drifting at every intersection :D!

Many thanks to olliepop2500HD for showing me how to do the high-idle mod! It sounds amazing, and warms up a lot faster. Right after I shut the camera down, it started pouring smoke, too :mrgreen: The picture below is of the high RPM at idle.
