The block heater finally arrived

From the instructions it appears that it is not mounted in the block's freeze holes, but there is a special port for it in a plastic coolant housing behind the engine. This technically makes it a coolant heater, but also eases installation.

Yesterday I installed a piece of coroplast between the radiator and intercooler.

This supplements the two-part grille block and should allow cooler air into the cylinder while keeping the engine warm.

The EGR/coolant heat exchanger has no wires, so it's the easiest mod (unless cooling the recirculated exhaust gasses will make a sensor somewhere else go bonkers). It looks like this:

I'm sure that a DPF in Mr A's ride would be kept quite clean...
