I will bottle up every degree over 110 and store and send it to you when the time is right.
I dont' have a good answer for you. When I lived in Colorado, I had two freezeplugs that I removed and heater elements put in, a pad the battery sat on, one inline on the lower radiator hose, a magnetic heater on the oilpan, and one that had a fan that heated the interior.
It all didn't do much good, it still hated to start, the ignition would stick is start position (vicegrips/pliers used to get it back to just run), no heat for the first 55 minutes if the trip, engine turning over at 3 rpms on starter, etc.
Go with the coolant heater, one designed for the lower radiator hose. They actually do help cold start up. it'll still take afew minutes for the car to warm up fully, but it'll save your battery and your bearings.
