    Best Coolant for Your Subaru?

    Hey guys, I am about replace the coolant because I picked up the Zero Sports thermostat for free from a buddy. Anyway I am running Motul coolant, but I am not sure if it was really worth the money. My car is only stage 2 but I like to used quality fluids. Any input would be great thanks!

    I use Subaru coolant. They supposedly add corrosion inhibitors that other coolants lack.

    I run plain ol' Prestone green.
    My temps are perfect, IMO. I NEVER buy 50/50 premix. I see absolutely no sense in paying $10 for 1/2gal of coolant and 1/2gal water, when I can pay $10 for a full gallon of coolant, and add water from the faucet.

    and I never understood the point of running a "performance" t-stat.. I recommend standard temped t-stat.

    Regardless of coolants, it is best to use distilled water for dilution. At around $0.80 a gallon it is cheap corrosion insurance.
