Do you have anything but stock guages? ralderman was not referring to the stock guages. As long as I've owned my 6 liter, plugging it in has never had a visible effect on the stock guage position after a cold soak. During sub-zero temps, I can easily tell if my block heater is working-the truck starts up better, but it sounds like it's missing terribly because of the lack of distribution of heat from the block heater. what i mean is.... the side with the heater element is warmer than the other side, so upon cold start, as the engine fires through it's firing order, the cylinders on the drivers side bank make more noise than the ones on the pass side(heated) bank. You may need to check your power source, or make sure you're using an appropriate cord. Better to use a lower guage (thicker) cord, and shorter length.
