Temps are hovering around 0C here. GT-R apparently doesn't have a block heater.

Has anyone put one of those stick on oil pan heaters on their car?

The block does have a provision for a block heater. It is on the back of the engine on the driverside bank:

Warex you are freaking awesome.

In theory, if we look back there, we should see a spot to plug the block heater cord into? I haven't seen any 120VAC cords laying around in the engine bay, and I'm assuming since it's a canuckistan car, that it should have the plug installed, just needs a cord.

Asking my first question again a little differently, with the oiling setup on the R35, Will putting a traditional stick on oil pan heater on the oil pan do anything? I looked at the ESM, and with the wet/dry sump setup I think the car has, I couldn't find any kind of oil reservoir documented anywhere, so I'm thinking a pan heater should work fine?

We took a look today, and there's a hole for the plug, but no heating element is installed.

yeah, and mines a Canadian 2009 GT-R as well, so I'm rather confused.
