Question Fluids

Well this may be a stupid question...but here goes. Any of you guys change your coolant? I am getting ready to do my H/C and was curious if anybody used something like the redline water wetter or anything like that? Or if you guys just went with the usual prestone type coolant?

I have used the Royal Purple Purple Ice, honestly I have not notice a difference in cooling, and I don't have a corrosion problem nor did I have one. So if anyone has a different opinion, I think it is a waste of money.

I used to use red line water wetter, i noticed no diff on the guage. Now i use evans cool its like 30.00 a gal and it works well, how much i dont know as i upgraded my fans, and radiator at the same time, so no real exacting #s, but it runs cool and is proven. Its used in nascar, drag and roadracing. Also some government vehicles.
