    Z20let coolent mix

    After finding i had a coolent leak due to a melted pipe coming from the turbo! i went to see my mate (johnny A) who helped me with fixing the pipe, finding out i have a VXR turbo in the process

    now i had about half left when i fixed the pipe and topped it up with water just untill i got new coolent today...

    i now have the new coolent and i was wondering coz the parts lady couldnt tell me is it an exact 50/50 mix for the zlet engine? thanks

    i always use 2:1 ratio personally unless ur expecting a very bad winter lol then 50/50 is good if not less.

    most go for 50/50 altho i like to make it go a little further so 70% water 30% coolant etc

    I trust youve got the longlife red stuff yeah?
