    Yes how to test the muffer heater is to fly the plane.
    But i was refuring to the english wheel and metal strecher. Still a long ways for flyin the Bluefox 0038, the heater in my Blackfox 0021 works good.

    So i have a question about the heatercore style heater someguys r  puttin in.  With the heater mounted under the dash or whereever in cockpit u mount it, the heater is always useing the same air inside the cockpit to continue to make warm. And with a human or ur canine companion inside the moisture in ur breath and the heater resuculating the warm air will FOG ur windows up somthing bad.  In the pic lv2plyguitar posted i dont think heatsheild wraped around muffler enough and the air can travel to fast by muffler from air inlet to outlet. 
    So i still like the muffler heater, long as u make it right and protect the muffler from being worn thro, i just finished mine on the Bluefox i used 1" firedoor gasket, aluminum rivited to the inside of some 6" stovepipe, hinged it so could get it on muffler, and a couple pices of 2"pipe welded to stovepipe to hook my hot air tube to. Total cost was just over $50 bucks.

    Fred is 100% correct Oratex 600 is more than good, but for the longjevite and the samples i have cn i wouldnt put the lighter material on my plane in Alaska for bush flying, Just my opinion i like the Oratex 6000
