Hmm neither is blocking your radiator going to help. The only real thing you can do to shorten the warmup time is to use a block heater and keep it plugged in.

Face it engine blocks have a lot of mass and it takes a while to get it to running temperature. Well lets see. if you lowered the running temperature then it would get there faster.
