Just a word of caution: maybe the permanent block works in the flatlands of Ontario, but if you ever decide to drive west and climb some mountains, you will quite likely run into overheating problems. Even in the winter, with my 1/2 radiator block that barely keeps coolant temp at the normal 195F on level roads, driving up to ski (4500 to 8900 ft elevation change) will send the temps into the 215-220 range. In summer, without any block, I can easily see 230F or more.
