If you're gonna do the flush/switch to the ELC, just check this link out and follow the instructions. Take most of the day, but should be well worth the trouble.

Brand is not a real concern as long as it has the EC-1 rating. Make sure you get the concetrate and unlike what was stated above CAT makes a concentrate.

Oh and yes, you want a 50/50 mix when all said and done.



06 F-350 CC, SB, Lariat- Insight CS, High idle, dieselsite coolant filter, 4" Diamond Eye, CAT ELC, 6.4 banjos w/reg kit, SCT w/MKM, SRL, or Looney, Leveled, PHP tuned 48v FICM, HID heads&fogs.
