Its hard to get serious about that when its 87F today.
You are SO going to have to post pics (and maybe some plan schematics) once this project is done--including how you plumbed it into your existing system (if you did.)
My rig has the extreme package, and it was toasty over Thanksgiving weekend with just the 750/1500W electric heater running (you know, after the mouse destroyed my furnace fan.) It felt warm to me, but it wasn't that cold out.
I know, I've been too quiet around here lately...been trying to catch up on my VW forums lately about the TDI engine emissions scandal, it's been fun reading...😉
