SV: [T3] "Dark side" heater improvement

Hi again!
It just hit me - a little drawback with your solution is that you have to be
sure that there are no leaks on the sucking side of the system (especially
around the heater chambers).  Otherwise there is a risk that the fan will
cause an underpressure in the heaters, suck in exhaust fumes and pump them
into the cabin. Not healty! (-Right, Eduardo?)  

Some like it the suicide way, though... ;-)      (-Right, Lisa?)

But who am I to say - I almost gassed myself to death the other night,
trying to make the f***ing gas heater to work - inside my garage! Not too
