Grid Heater

Looking her all over well today, found the grid heater unhooked and two heavy gauge wires, ends taped up, ohmed the forward lugs it read 1.8, (two lugs forward two back), guessing cause of length and placement of wires mine hooks to the front two, but this morning at 22degs she started fine, any thoughts.

On a good note, installed the 2790 filter and found a 4"turbo back exhaust, (no muffler) and a billet converter allready installed

'97 3500 dually cc 4x4, bhaf, 4" down pipe to 5" exhaust, 100 plate, boost elbow, 4k gsk, timing bump, 60lb springs. Trans Go shift kit. Billet Converter. Isspro boost, pyro & trans temp gauges.
