Cold Start Up and Warm up Time

I was wondering what you guys are experiencing for full warm up time on these colder mornings?

I was looking at Heater Hotter wondering how much it would help. I have had good experiences with their Water Wetter Products in the Past.

do you really want to swap coolants that often ???? whynot look at a radiator block, or even better, a SCT tuner and raise the idle rpm, mines at 725 and it takes 15 mins to see 186 temp.

This is what the block heater is for, then do the high idle mod.
