What coolant to buy?

I tried searching but there are endless threads about coolant...

I;m doing my head studs next week and I would like to know the choice ELC coolant that you guys prefer.

They have Zerex EC-1 at napa for $20 a gallon and I was thinking about going with that. I'm flushing with restore as well before the job.

Also- how many gallons do I need?

2005 F250 SCSB XLT 4X4- Studded-EGR Delete-OEM HEAD GASKETS(black onyx failed)-Oil Cooler Rebuild-HPOP fitting-6.4 Banjos-Blue Fuel Pressure Spring-MBRP 4"-Innovative Tunes-Viper Remote Start-BFG 35s-2.5" Leveling Kit-- 13.9 @ 95mph on x-street, x-race should be good for ~13.6
