    Just want to get a ballpark number out there of what you guys are using for intercoooler resv for fluid. Some people use 50/50 coolant or unmixed with distilled water which i read is a no bueno, i will end up just getting pre-mixed for my radiator. Either way, How many of you are using straight mixed coolant or fords GOLD for their intercooler/resv/heat exchanger.

    I would like to do good by my car this time since its a entirely new build. Previous i just used the radiator coolant 50/50 distilled mixed in the intercooler which is apparently a bad water mix and should use tap or pureified water. Be that as it may, 50/50 or Gold?

    Distilled water and Amsoil Dominator coolant boost. It dropped my IAT2's a bit and helped the recovery times vs using a 50/50 Distilled and Motorcraft Gold.

    Still using the Gold in both radiator and intercooler.

    But after what SID posted in the coolant thread I will be switching.

    Winter - 70/30 Filtered Water/Zerex G05 mix
    Summer - 100% filtered water with Amsoil Dominator Coolant Boost additive (2 ounces per quart of water).

    This applies to the radiator and the intercooler. To filter my own water, I use Zerowater.
