I cant seem to go past the Tectaloy range of coolants since my neighbour next to my old mans work ( who runs a radiator shop) told me although it isnt the greatest thing on the market, Its the best value for money.I ran it in my 360 powered val to my ef xr8 and there hasnt been any probs at all.

I couldn't reccomend high enough an aussie desert cooler 4 core radiator, yeah it is not a cheap option, but you won't have any cooling issues ,even in traffic on a 40 degree day.
Anyway i think its mandatory to be in control of the cooling system on any non stock or older engine running on a fuel that it wasn't designed to.
