I plug mine in when it gets to the low 40s, normally i leave it plugged in all night. You can set up a timer so it will only be on for about 3 hours before you have to leave, that is enought to warm it up. And yes it helps out alot with warming the truck up.

I have a Accufab intake elbo and I could not tell the diference at the track but it does seem to help with turbo lag a little. Check out the new ones on Elite's web site they look like they may work a little better.

I have an elbow from Custom sheet metal intake elbows and valve covers and to be honest I can't tell any feel of the pants difference over stock. It might make a couple more ponies on the dyno, not sure... Plug your truck in when it gets down close to freezing and below. All you need is to have it plugged in for about 3 hours before you drive it, so a cheap timer will save you some money vs. having it plugged in all night. It definately will start easier and warm up faster.



'06 True Blue/Silver 250 crew cab
ARP's, EGR blocked
AFE stg.2, MBRP 4" pipe
Air Dog 150, ITP reg. return
Bulletproof oil bypass system
Banks technicooler
Ride rite air springs in the rear
EGT, boost, and fuel pressure gauges by DiProcol on the pillar

Plus a few other odds and ends...
