Water Wetter?

I used "Water Wetter" in the radiator of a 73 Corvette I owned a few years ago. It brought the anti-freeze temperature down about 20 degrees. Has anyone used this type of product in the 5th Gen?

I did a ton of research on it and came to the conclusion that in anything less than a full on track car that runs water only it is a waste of time/money. Also found that some brands are complete snake oil and a small few can actually damage your cooling system.

Water wetter, purple ice, etc. are excellent products and help lubricate the water pump and add to the anti corrosive properties of the anti freeze. Antifreeze does NOT do well at heat transfer so it will help for sure but works best water & additive only with just 10-20% antifreeze if you live where temps are never at a hard freeze. Up north you have no choice.

In water to air intercoolers applications we run it always and the result is dramatic.

Just remember that the more antifreeze in your coolant mix the less able the system is to remove heat but it is CRITICAL to alway have the proper mixture to avoid freezing damage if you live in a cold climate. Here in FL we use very little and watter wetter or purple ice.
