What coolant to use
I was wondering this as i am finishing up my engine install and i know in the automotive field that the manufactures use the "orange" coolant as its suppossed to be non corrosive to the aluminum components i.e Instake leaks,headgaskets.. and i was would think that this would be the same with the 4TECs? And another question,what about using distilled water for less corrosion also,My main concern for ALL of us is less corrosion would help headgasket failures in some aspect i would think,what about you

The only coolant to use to over come your concerns is EVANs......it is waterless, and expensive.
Snoman......I did as you suggested; 50/50 premix.

How important is it to flush the cooling system out with distilled water before adding the new coolant? The shop manual describes quite a process for coolant changes.
