It's a wetting agent, and lowers the surface tension of the coolant. I've never heard of it causing problems. I'll have to pick some up for the Cobra when I see it. It's only 20 bucks for a couple botttles. I really need to get my temp gauge installed :banghead

I've got Watter Wetter in both the I/C and radiator cooling sytems with no problems. I ran a road course track event about 5 weeks ago and the temps were fine. The temperature outside never got very warm (above 70) so it was hard to tell if it will make a lot of difference.

I used to run watter wetter in my SCCA A/S car and it made about 20 deg difference in engine temps.

Jimmy,

I have used Water Wetter and another product called "Blue Ice" religiously when I raced motorcycles. I have also used water wetter in several of my past hi-po vehichles. Both products help to dissipate heat which is a good thing. Now on the motorcycle side, if I didn't use the product then my top end would get so hot it would sieze. This was due to some serious motor work and on the edge tuning.

I have yet to put water wetter in my cobra or the aftercooler for that matter. I would highly reccomend using it though.

P.S. Never had a foaming issue with either product.

Razor.

COOLANT ADDITIVES


Cool Down:
Reduces cooling system operating temperatures by 20-50 degrees. Works great in race cars, their towing vehicles, and long idling applications. 1 bottle per 2.5 gallons / 2 ounces per quart for motorcycles. Reduces coolant surface tension, allows better laminar coolant flow for better heat transfer. Lubricates without the crystallization of other coolant additives.

Well since I do not own an 03 it would be foolish of me to say it wouldn't foam up. Now I do not know Water Wetter for having the tendency to foam up and my thought is that you would be safe to use it. I'll throw some in my Aftercooler resiovior and try it out. Get back to me in a few days and I will let you know the results.;)

No foam in my intercooler resivoir put water wetter in there last summer, also drained all the coolant out of it for further heat trainsfer. Just water and additive in there and it stays nice and cool with the fan kit helping also. All the tricks
