2015 Coolant Top Off

So after I did my egr delete I lost some coolant. Enough to have the level drop below the required fill line on the primary and secondary.

I'm gonna be doing a long drive tomorrow up to the mountains and wanted to top it off.

Do I just get the new orange motorcraft coolant from ford and top it off and call it good?

How long did it take you? Gotta be nice to reclaim that space under the hood.

Thanks...I thought you did the entire delete. Debating which way to go. I know the plates are easy but would love to just get the whole thing out and be done too.

From what I've read the plates offer the same benefits as a full delete minus the extra engine compartment room.

You'll be fine with doing that. But down the road you'll run into problems using that ford gold coolant crap. You need to switch to a cat ec-1 rated coolant

The 6.7 doesn't use the gold coolant, it uses the orange.
