Freeze plug heater suggestions?

Planning on putting one in my 4 banger. Anyone have some suggestions?

Also wondering what the size of the front plug is.... Looks like 1 3/4 is printed on the cap, but I cant be sure. The reading I have done states 2 inches, but those are all rear plug sizes. Do front and rear plugs have diff diameters?

Thanks for your help!

Get one with removable cord (if it should ever get melted, you can replace the cord without replacing the plug). Use a little silicon sealant on the o-ring to help prevent leaks. Power it from a timer so you don't waste electricity (had mine set to turn on about 2 hours before I went to work).

Should be 1.75" for a 4cyl engine.
