Intercooler coolant

This should be filled all the way up to the neck correct?? I'm hearing 50/50 dexcool? Is that correct?

Well...

the fact that the op asked specifically the ratio, and he's in IN, and a newb here, and that no one mentioned that a 50/50 ratio is required in freezing climates...

I thought it would be helpful to so answer.

OP, and it will need frequent small refills as it "burps" itself of air. User HAMMDO ? found a trick using a 1foot piece of clear tubing to fit inside with the cap off, which can be filled about 1/4 of the way up the tube with dexcool, and that lets it burp without spilling until it's finished. Key on off to get the pump running and burp it. Might have to start it to get the pump to run I don't recall.
