I've heard of several individuals here using it, and by all accounts it
works as advertised.

It's all I use during the summer in both the '69 Mustang and the '68
Ranchero. They went from running hot (overheating) to running warm. Straight
water wetter and distilled water.

Both engines are .060" overbores and run extremely hot if I use half
prestone/half water. Flushed the entire system and ran the other. Night and
day. Course you HAVE to switch back to half and half if there's even the
slight chance the block could freeze during the winter. I do it to the
Mustang even though it get's parked all winter. I'm not taking the chance.
Not with ~$9000 between the two motors.

I use it on my 1997 Cobra with apparently good results (96-98 cobra's
are notorious for having a marginal cooling system). The author of the
Mustang Performance Guide (vol 1 &2 ) recommended it in his books, and
he seemed to be spot on with the rest of his advice.

Re: Water Wetter

Thanks for the info. What about just adding the little bottle to my current
cooling system? It looks to be about a pint or a quart.

I would really only use it when you need the extra cooling. That's just me
though. I don't see any benefit during the winter in making your radiator
fluid run even cooler.

That is what your thermostat is for? No?

Ah yes. What WAS I thinking. Man I was Soooooo tired when I typed that. I'm
running on about 10 hours sleep over the last 5 days. Half of it last night.

Some Muther Fugger swiped my wallet the other day so I've been covering my
ass and not sleeping from the stress, on top of the holidays and getting my
ass kicked at work.

I wouldn't go over .030 overbore on a small block
