redline water wetter

helps heat conduct throough the water and dissapate or some funky s**t

check with ford it may void your warrenty....


around $25-$30 for a bottle and it is all u need

ohh it can be added to coolant as well
so get the proper s**t then add the redline stuff...

EF/EL had pink coolant that came through the hoses somehow and turned the white writing on them pink.
90% of the Ba's i see at work have green coolant but i have seen pink in them too. possibly due to warranty work and dealer avalability of coolant or whatever. i cant see someone at ford standing there going green for you pink for you randomly. but i spose if its anything like the bonnet cables , brakes and diffs and that steering shudder should i go on lol you never know
