I put it on a timer for 3 hours before I leave for work. The engine starts right up with no strain and the cabin warms up shortly after, on a -4 F degree morning. Make sure you follow the instructions closely and install the heater, with the head down, at an angle, close to the water pump. Otherwise you may shorten the life of the heating element.
I installed the Kats 14500, (600Watt heater for 1-1/4"hose) on the 3.1L V6, lower radiator hose of my 97 Olds Cutlass Supreme. (Some 3.1L,V6 Chevys and Pontiacs should be a similar install)
Since my car was not on the list, I called Kat's about the installation on my car, and as long as it is installed properly, you follow the instructions, and install it at an angle close to the water pump, it will work just fine. The cooling system has to be purge of all air before you operate the heater.
Not an install for a beginner, but for someone who has some auto cooling system-repair know how.
Installation was a pain for me. I have a compact car, so space was limited for me to work. It needs to be installed on the lower radiator hose, as close to the water pump as you can get.
