    I just put one in this Fall start with Kat block heater plugs http://www.warehouseautoparts.com/store/Kats_Toyota-Scion_Engine_Heater.html It's a pain to put in because it's behind the left pipe on the motor. There a hole in the block and the heater is inserted into that. I had to make a tool to get the plug in place But it work well. Give the company a call to make sure it's the right one. Good luck Any question let me know

    http://www.warehouseautoparts.com/st...ne_Heater.htmlKat's 11813 Frost Plug heater (cartridge)$31.13 On Sale! $26.98
    this is the same unit that is for sale at http://www.trdparts4u.com/scripts/pr...dproduct=-5127 for 2x the $$. The heater from the ware house is a Kat's cartridge that fixs in the hole that is drilled in the motor. The only diffrent from warehouse and trd is that trd give you a tube of dielectric grease, which you can get at a Auto store, a strip of heat reflective tape, which I got a the ship yard, the plug cap which I had, and a nice little box. Kat's heater most likley make the heater for trd.
    Why would anyone like in such a cold place, " It keep the rift raft out and our home guard are the Black Flies"
