Coolant bypass install ?

Just got my sisniter coolant bypass delivered and just wondering how much coolant I will lose during the install.The dealer just did a coolant flush with the gold,I know I know but I figured it has been flushed and I wanted to to get the bypass on there.Do I need to get more coolant for the install?....thx

The coolant loss will come from when you cut the heater hose. I didn't think that it was going to spew out much so I just cut it and ended up with a driveway full of coolant before I could stuff the T in there. I bought a gallon of Gold to be safe and I ended up using about half of it (make sure to mix with distilled since it's concentrate). You could pinch the hose off as well. This would have been better probably

Some say they lose very little coolant on install. Myself, I drained some off into a clean container and re-used. You will need to fill to correct line to make up for the filter.

Do I really have to mix distilled water in even If I only lose about a 1/2 gallon or so?

Tap water, with minerals and crap is no good for the cooling system. For $1 get distilled.
