Default V3 going HO

Super excited today. Ordered the HO upgrade from GTR and the tunes from Brenspeed. Install appointment pending- probably next week. I can't wait for the extra 50+ horses to the wheels. Finally pulled the trigger. YES! Quick ? what coolant should I go with?? I am going to add the purple ICE to it but want to get a good base.

The anticipation for that first test drive is already building.

ethylene glycol antifreeze (green) or GM Dex-Cool® antifreeze?

Cool man, how much did the upgrade kit run you? Brenspeed wants like $1700 or something. My shop quoted me a couple hours for install and said I could just wait on it. I might do that closer to the summer before I move out to Colorado... that way I can get some of the power I lose at altitude back.

We run standard antifreeze. Just mix it according to your temperatures so it does not freeze if you drive your car in the winter. (normally Prestone)

I appreciate the info.

Just so everyone knows-- Brenspeed has been extremely helpful and supportive. I bought the V3 kit standard from them and they were very understanding when I asked for the HO tune and bought the upgrade from GTR.

I was unsure if the FI set up called for a different type... I thought I would ask just to be sure.

That's what I used in my 2005 Mustang GT when I had the Vortec HO S/C on it.
