Some foam in coolant system. Should I worry?

Some background first.

I did the PgreenSVT flushing procedure before I replaced my oil cooler and most everything else in my sig.

My sinister coolant filtration system hoses where leaking. So I called MKM and they sent me a whole new kit out. Well last weekend I drained about a gallon out of my radiator from the drain to lower the level of coolant in my system. In preparation for swapping out the hoses

My concern is what came out. I had a decent amount of foam that came out. It settled down quickly to ELC koolaid. I replaced the hoses and filled back up with a 50/50 mix of ELC concentrate.

Should I be concerned with the foam??? If I have to I will flush the B**** again.. But is some foam normal I guess is my real question.. I would think not, but man not wanting to dump out 100 bucks of coolant and filter just for being paranoid. Temps are great just FYI most of the time 4 to 7 degrees apart.

You didn't get all of the Restore flushed out. That is where the foam is coming from. As long as it is settling out quickly I would leave it alone and check it again in a month or so.
