    I recently was in a performance engine rebuilding class and found out alot of racers use this to keep their engines cool when out racing. My friend has it in his race car and it keeps the engine temp. so low sometimes it takes him a while to get UP to operating temperature.

    The website is <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.evanscooling.com>http://www.evanscooling.com</A>

    It costs about $25 a gallon but, I think it is well worth it if you have tried everything under the sun to keep your Blazer's engine cool on those slow speed off-road trips. I plan to use it in my engine when I get it put back together.

    Just thought I would pass this info on to everyone on here.

    Interesting. I'll try this stuff when I install my 454.

    Just out of curiosity, I have sent them an email asking how their product would perform in a slow-crawling, off-road enviroment. I know that some of you are mud runners, but there are those of use that wheel with the J**pers in the crepy-crawly world of rocks. I will post their reply when I get it.

    I would be careful going this route. I've looked at this stuff for my vehicle and found out a few things. It does not dissipate heat as well as water or normal antifreeze. As a result you get LESS cooling. It does have a higher boiling point but the motor still runs hot. Stewart racing does most of the water pumps for the roundy round racers and he also does not like this stuff. (www.stewartcomponents.com) I've also read about people eating head gaskets while using the Evans product. Just my 2 cents.

    I have just reported to you what I heard. I know a few circle track and drag racers that use the stuff and they have had no problems as of yet. But, there are always a down side to everything. I plan on doing alot of research on it to make sure it will work with my application.

    Thanks for the info. It all helps us on here if we hear both sides of the story.

    Will do. But, it probably won't be until next summer. Unless money falls out of the sky and into my Blazer somehow!!
