Again, if the system is kept up and maintained, Dexcool can be a good coolant... But how many people really keep up with the cooling system?

I have found for the hard earned Buck, and Longlife, the Prestone Orange coolant is great for any situation weather replacing the green just to have longlife coolant, or for dumping the Dex Cool for another coolant...

I do reccomend the prestong longlife


On topic...

There are no upgraded gaskets for the Series I engines... But the Fel Pro'* have given me no trouble and even after several years they came out looking like brand new..

This was after 4 years on my Vin C 3800

The gaskets on the Zilla looked good enough to re-use when I pulled them at 105k for the first time.

Since you guys are patting each other on the back about having gaskets that didn't look used. I'll throw in, my gaskets looked use, were ready for replacing and it felt good knowing they'd be fresh.

So there..(j/k)
