Default Oil heater VS Block heater

I installed a Moroso oilpan on my 06 sti and needed to eliminate the blockheater for clearence of the new dipstick tube on the Moroso pan. My problem is that I live in Edmonton Alberta and temps drop around -35 and need some type of heater besides the stock oem blockheater. Is there another port in the block for the blockheater?? could I install a heater in a rad hose?? Or could I install a oil preheater that screws into my Moroso Pan??? Which would be the best solution??

I would just use a stick on oil-pan heater... Good enough. Or an in-line water coolant heater works great too... Get both and you are set to be able to start even in -45*C no problems.

I'm actually pretty interested as well because I want my built motor to last as long as possible and my neighbors aren't exactly fond of a my exhaust resonating thru their house while I let it warm up.

I think I will buy the Moroso oil preheater since I can thread it into my pan and run synthetic 5w30..Where can you buy these inline coolant heaters ?

I'm also interested in this, I just moved to Southeast Saskatchewan and am buying a Subie soon. Dare I say the winters here might be a little worse that Edmontons? What kind of oil do you run in the winter vmax?

I run Redline 5w30 in the engine and 75w90 in tranny and rear diff seems to work good but I think the oilheater will help those cold starts
