Why did you decide to go with SS?

I went with stainless steel for a few reasons.
1 Already had some of it on hand, I bought about 40 feet of used 2 inch 316SS steam pipe for exhaust pipe projects.
2 Stainless is very weldable.
3 The pipe fittings were only marginally more expensive than steel or iron fittings plus bushings I would have needed to make it work from lowes.
4 Getting the pipe fittings off ebay I could get them in the size I need, eliminating the need for bushings.
5 It looks cool.

Here is what it looks like when you try to use 2 inch fittings all around.
I only mocked it up and thought, mmmmm No.
Big, ugly, heavy and all around looks poorly done.

Can you use copper parts to? Or would it corrode to fast?

Copper would be fine but the 2 inch fittings needed would be very expensive.

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.

I am used to glow plugs like that only using about 10 amps each.
Those draw 20 amps each?
Just remember the alternator likely puts out less than 30 amps at lower engine speed. The alternator needs to get spinning upward of 6,000rpm any where near its rated output.

Also, powering heating up your engine with alternator power really isn't a great way to gain efficiency.

Ive got an (80)150amps alternator. So probably putting out 80 amps at idle.

I just dont have the ability to plug in with an extension cord.

So i aim forces to use this.
