I'm thinking of adding an engine block heater to my 5S this winter. Anyone ever put one on for an aftermarket set-up?

Never done on a celica...Pretty simple usually, just replace one of the core plugs with the unit, then run the plug up to the front of the car so you can plug it in. Well, simple in saying. You have to drain the whole coolant system, then hope to god you don't lose the plug in the core....assuming you can even get to a plug with the engine installed.

Freeze plugs will be no fun to mess with while the engine is in the car....

I put a block heater onto my motor. But it was out of the car at the time. Im pretty sure it would be a PITA pull a frost plug with the engine in the car.

Im not sure how much it matters where exactly the heater goes, but its "supposed" to go on the back side, which i cant see anyone doing unless the motor is out.
