Default Block Heater on an EJ20G

It's winter in Colorado and my alcoholic EJ20G hates firing when the temp is below 45*. I'm guessing one of the best ways to deal with this would be an OEM block heater.

Anybody installed one on an EJ20G?
If so give me the lowdown please.
Thanks.

I'll chime back in after I get it and do it. We'll see how it helps cold start on E85.

I put one on my '91 Legacy SS because my Autronic EM is controling boost and not the IAC, it will control one or the other but not both at once. Anyway, I think the block heater works great. Really just takes a few hours, or less depending how cold it is, to get up to a nice temp. to start easily, and the cabin is warmer sooner. That same part number fits all Subaru blocks, and they are not that expensive. The plug you remove from the block to install the heater element, can be real hard to remove, and you don't want to round out the hex hole. I used the correct size socket, with a 1/2" dr. breaker bar, and a cheater pipe on that. My plug had been in for 17 years though.
