I just got and O2 SVT with a Vortech supercharger on it. When I looked underneath the car I saw an electrical plug. It goes to the red part in the pic. It looks like it's routed to the radiator. I thought it was an engine warmer but I'm not so sure.

In hose type engine warmer.

Had to read halfway upside down to see "120 V" to confirm.

That's kinda what I thought. I couldn't figure our what else would of had an electrical plug on it. You know who even makes these? I've never seen one before.

They've been around forever, not one of the more useful heater setups as you're trying to heat a radiator as well as the engine. Multiple brands.

Block heaters work the best when avail., then there are types that hook into heater hoses - heater hose & tap off the block - lower rad. hose like the one you have - then you get into things like dipstick heaters & battery warmers....

Some of the gadgets work better than others.
