Get it out now! It is eating the intake gasket. @ the crossovers, then it will leak into the valley. Total JUNK.

It was junk, garbage, snake oil 30 years ago when it first hit the market.

Danger Boy, your buddy here with the 63 split window. As Tech said potential trouble as I witnessed the damage.

It's been used for centuries. And it does work well, but like all things, a man has to know it's limitations.

Water and $3 worth of water pump lube has worked fine for us. And at the end of the year just dump it on the ground, I see no need for $50/gal coolant than trying to recapture/reuse it.

Water is a horrible coolant?

This is both true and false, waters thermal properties lend it to being a VERY good coolant. The chemical properties on the other hand are middle of the road, its non-toxic but will corrode some metals.

Evans waterless coolant is not snake oil when its used for what it was designed for, namely temps well above anything a drag engine will ever see in normal operation.
