Was wanting to know what coolant you guyz run in ya falcons. I spoke to ford a while ago, and they said the red stuff isn't as good as the green glycol, something about the inhibitors not as good in the red stuff, so was just wanting to know what some you run in ya cars.
Also I recently changed the spark plugs from champion gold to split fire plugs, and theres no real difference from like $5 a plug to $15, I don't reccomend any buy these plugs as there a rip off and the car doesn't seem to run any better if anything the car runs worse, i think i'l put the old plugs back in.
So, was wanting to know what plugs you guyz use also,
The coolant I am using is Nulon brand. The maker claims that it is supposed to last 250,000 kms, which is a bit of a joke. But nonetheless, I hope it should be above average stuff. My cooling system has never been particularly put to the test so to speak. The car has a very easy life.

I don't know if the coolant works, How can ya tell? But I use it in case!
I use NGK, I found it worked the best on a mates 351 Capri, so I've always used them. When changing plugs I doubt you'll notice much of a difference. It's more of a fuel over a period of time thing. But the Capri test was over the 1/4 mile and on the Dyno.
Be sure th check the whole ignition system when looking for Kw's...

I've just started using Tectaloy 90 after a full engine flush and radiator replacement. If you are going to change the coolant, then make sure you flush the system completely and use only one brand of coolant ( don't mix brands). Also don't go for the cheap stuff.
