If one were able to shoot hot steam at some part of the engine to warm it up, which would be the best location?

how can something be welded to an exhaust manifold?

Would a brazing rod work to attach some copper or stainless pipe? Or would it melt off?

Exhaust

FYI /FWIW

Although, VW and the Toyota are the top two world wide automotive manufactures. VW has shown pathetic corporate governance. Water cool exhaust has been used on many diesel marine application with terrific results. VW has corporately stated they will be ICE free in some future day. Sadly VW had not problem in misleading the worldwide consumers about clean diesel. VW and Honda have had some impressive engineering and technology concepts sadly and reality and corporate mindsets have not allow much of them to see the light of day.

My guess is the oil pan.

Honda's oil warmers/coolers are a water jacket that sits between the oil filter and the block, actually. Since coolant heats up more quickly than oil, it helps bring the oil up more quickly. I hope to add one to my current engine.
