And this is a good investmend!

I always have a long warm up time, even in summer!
@ 20 degrees Celcius air temps with full upper grill block: 20 minutes (16km) to go from 25 to 85 degrees Celcius coolant temps.
@ -5 degrees Celcius air temps with full upper grill block: 35 minutes (30 km) to go from 0 to 85 degrees Celcius coolant temps

Hopefully those 600W and aditional alternator load would help the warm up times.
