I'd go to a cat dealership and pick up some CAT ELC… really anything ELC is better than that crap Ford gold stuff.

Lots of threads on this.
Napa carries Zerex. Oreilly's has Peak Final Charge, which is what I use.

There is a Napa close i guess Zerex it is! How many Gal's do the 6.4's need? Got to stop tomorrow and get a crap load of distilled water for the flush!

Total coolant capacity in the 6.4 is just a touch under 33 qts...YES...over 8 gallons. All but two quarts is for the main cooling system with those two quarts going in the fuel cooler.

So that means since you want a 50/50 mix, you need to add 4gals of concentrate to after your final distilled water drain.
