Go ahead and add the Restore, after running it through the system, flush very well before doing the Restore Plus, then flush very well again (with distilled water) and add your new coolant (preferably a red ELC) and distilled water mix. I recommend doing all the flushing with the thermostat out to make it more effective and make the flushing easier. You can also pull the driver's side block plug pretty easily, which will get another gallon or so out.
