Default Block heater

Has anyone added a block heater to a turbo set up to assist with warming the block reducing engine wear? I got the idea from ecomodder
Civic Block Heater Install - Fuel Economy, Hypermiling, EcoModding News and Forum - EcoModder.com
Any thoughts would be welcome thanks

i dont think it will improve much. i personally dont think you should be beating on the car till its up to operrating temp. and the heater will not getit that warm.

Its actually better for the engine to have a block heater than it is to drive around to operating temp. Its not only easier on the engine but it also saves you gas. I'd get one fo sho...

course, it depends on where you live too

running rich much? I remember when i first got my D15B swap I would drive all the way to work (60 or so miles away) in the morning and it would never warm up. Then I chipped the P28 ECU with P08 maps and everything got warm in the time it should and I got better gas mileage. Right now I have an integra radiator and my car still warms up fairly quickly and it's at 14.7~ AFR at idle.. So I say there is an underlying problem. Perhaps the thermostat is stuck open?

what does it idle at? if you have a wideband. it should be around 14.7:1 at idle no need to add more fuel that low

I get it...warm the engine up, let the oil thin out a bit before you pump it through your turbo and whatnot...but unless your area regularly gets below 20F then you're just being overly paranoid IMO. Buy the right viscosity oil for your environment.
