GET THE PREHEAT SYSTEMTHAT RUNS ON ALLCYLINDERS.
“We were impressed with the performance . . .
this system is an excellent value and is suitable
for very cold conditions.” -AVIATION CONSUMER
Preheating improves safety and extends
the life of your expensive engine by
reducing damage caused by cold
starts. We have systems to heat
the cylinders, the oil, or both –
and we do it better than anyone
else. We never leave cylinders
unheated due to conflicts
with your CHT sensors, and
our metal sump heater makes
silicone pads obsolete.
Our systems are also non-invasive...
we don’t replace any engine parts with ours.
