I don't think you want to use the vegitherm style heat, high heat electric style heaters will cause poly build upin the system. Without a heated filter head, and wrapped filter, that area of your system is loosing heat. You IR 140, but I bet its 140 and going down. Your FPHE looks a tad small too, mine is 3 times the size and mounted under the pass seat on frame rail.
I see 185 veg (truck temp will be 190s) all day long in 30 degrees without my alaska bra. If I put the bra on, it raises both veg and ect 10-15 degrees and will hold temps well below zero. I will run in -20 deg f pulling my sleds in the mountains and see 180. Getting the old girl started without being plugged in after a night of -20, is another story...
I needs an espar.
