Heavy Duty-PF Coolant???

05 250 4x4 6.0
I have already replaces EGR twice via factory warranty. I am now going through this engine myself looking to all of you for your experience.
I bought Chevron Heavy Duty-PF coolant today.
Does anyone have any experience with this coolant? Is there another product that will be better? Label says International on the meet requirements panel. It also talks about testing and adding SCA's. I prefer not to have to do that.
Whatcha think?

I'd say go with Caterpillar ELC and be done with it

No problem, I just go with what works

btw, Are you running any sort of monitor to see what your temps are? do you still have a oem egr cooler, or are you planning on deleting?

I agree. I don't wanna create any new process. I have enough to do.

Check out the first link in my signature and my Flush directions in the 6.0 Tech Files section. That should get you going. Get something to monitor your vitals. Either and Edge Insight CS/CTS or a Scangauge II.
