After pounding out my center freeze plug for the
heater, I realized that I could have an interferance
issue with the turbo or down pipe connection.
I know the heating element for the KATS heater is OK
to go in this hole or the #1 piston position hole,
meaning it has room on the inside of the block wall.

Has anyone put a block core heater in the center plug
before on a 1.6TD?  It was in the #1 piston side
before I think in this motor.
The Block and trans are still in the car, head and
everything else off and out of the way.

Thanks, Bryan
