    Coolant & thermo recommendations

    hey guys i am going to tackle the next thing on my Preludes to do list which is the coolant and thermostat/gasket. At the moment i just ran with Nulon (green long life blah bah) it's working far as i know. So what are you guys using on your H22's and are those Tridon High Flow Thermostat worth it.They say up to 30% more coolant flow etc is that just a sales gimmick? should i just get a oem or stock tridon one.


    Thanks Guys

    Funny you should say that, I run the Nulon green 5 year stuff 50:50 along with a Tridon high-flow. I have the JDM H22A though which uses a larger thermostat, so the Tridon doesn't sit quite right in the housing. Apart from always getting a little coolant flow (meaning my aftermarket temp gauge works immediately) I've had no problems. My temp gauge always sits right on 80-85C during normal driving, but on the weekend she spent long times idling in the spanking heat and it still didn't go past 100C. If you're not having overheating issues then I see no reason to change.

    Sweet yeah when i bought the car it just had very old weak looking coolant and the fan was kicking in a lot. So i just did a quick drain and fill with Nulon green for a temp fix guess il stick with it and grab a new thermo. Oh yeah doesn't overheat well I'm judging by the stock gauge and the steam out of the bonnet method .
