I don't care for Engine Ice, I've seen it turn to a soap like substance over time and cause issues with radiator flow.

Any anti freeze for aluminum engines will work with a 50/50 mix of distilled water.

Maxima offers Coolanol that is premixed and works well from both a corrosion and a cooling stand point. You can also add Water Wetter or Motul MoCool to the mix to improve cooling.

I run that on my bike. No problems. I noticed when I start it up in the garage before I change the oil it takes slightly longer to raise up to temp than before but that might just be all in my head.

I use it because its non glycol based and that is a requirement for cmra.

When using Water Wetter with just water it is a suitable lubricant for the water pump, but it loses it's effectiveness over 8-12 months. It also is not very corrosion resistant.

For those reasons I recommend draining and flushing the system at least yearly, preferably every 6 months so you won't have any corrosion or water pump seal issues.

half a bottle of this royal purple coolant

41HBcrrzevL SL500 AA300 and distilled water.

and a couple ounces of coolant to lube the seals has worked for me.

No real experiance but I have tried similar products in a past life on an old big block 440 CU Mopar yeah it's a car engine.
I did not get good results but I was a bit sloppy on the installation
If you try any of these I would suggest follow the instructions to the letter.
you only get one chance or you need to purchase again.
