I am a big fan of the TIH as well. As Aaron said it is a much cleaner install, is cheap do make( black iron tees, street elbows & pipe nipples). It provides a much better heat transfer, makes a smaller bundle so is eaiser to feed through tight spots when trying to find routes for fuel lines.
Is it needed?? No. Is more heat better?? IMHO yes. I agree that the auxillary coolant pump is a great addition along with a 203F t-stat. You put a hotfox in your tank & a good FPHE as the last thing before the heads along with TIH, 203 t-stat & coolant pump & you will never have low veg temps no matter how cold it is out.
For the OP where you live TIH will not be required. But I would still suggest it. I would spend my money on a 203 t-stat & aux coolant pump & you should be fine.
