    Doh forget the ecu relearn time though. Battery out for a bit should help that.

    You use traditional Glycol or P-OAT?

    Lmao I can't tell you how much time I clean the MAF, the gasket got hard from all the cleaner and the MAF still works like new after cleaning.

    So I've been told that the glycol based coolants in our climate actually help to induce oxidation in our aluminium heads causing many of the overheating issues faced. Can anyone confirm?

    Would Glycoshell count as a glycol based coolant? If it will, then I have to say not really. After a few years of having Glycoshell in an aluminum head, it was still perfectly green and there was no rust what so ever in the radiator.

    Keep an empty gallon of the premix container so in the future you can use it to mix the concentrate 50/50.
