Any One Used A Product Called Water Wetter ,made By Redline? They Claim An Eight Degree Decrease With A 50/50 Water Glycol Mix, And A 26 Degree Decrease With Water And Redline Only. Thoughts On Using This Instead Of Replacing Thermostat?

wetter water

ive never used it, but have been told it usually will show a decrease in running temperature, or at the very least will help cool hot spots in the system.

Tanks for the memories

Redline water wettter became available shortly after the first coming. Its still around because it works. I run it in all my vehicles. Since I live in Hawaii, antifreeze is not needed, but if you live in COLD country, obviously you still need it. I would also run a "water wetter antifreeze" mixture if you are dealing with aluminum heads or block, just for added protection....even though Redline says its not necessary. They had a commercial long ago with ducks swimming in a bathtub. They were happy flooters. Add water wetter...and they sank...or at least had to strugle to stay afloat. Water wetter is a "surfactant", changes the surface tension of water, and changes its flow properties. Its all physics, and this is a solid product that has withstood the test of time.

According To Their Web-site,(redlineoil.com), There Is No Mention Of A Thermo Stat. It Improves The Cooling Characteristics Of Water. Check Out The Web-site Its Pretty Cool (pun Intended)

I don't see how you can run any cooler than what you're thermostat is set at. I can see it helping if you can't get down to the temp of your stat.

FWIW, I started a thread a while back about a lower temp thermostat, and 9seconds posted this phone # for DC performance ---:> Dan Cragin VIPER TECH LINE 310-597-6295

Well, I called this number a couple times to ask his opinion on a 180 thermostat. Once the phone just kept ringing and nobody picked up, and the other time I left a message, but he never got back to me. So obviously I have no answer, but wanted you guys to know I haven't totally forgot about it. Maybe I'll try again when I get a chance.

You have to be kiddng me???

How many rods run at 160 or 180 degrees just because thats the degree thermostat thats installed? No matter what thermostat you have installed, water wetter will decrease your operating tempature. You dont have to have a overheating problem for it to do this. If you have a 160 degree thermostat installed, run a flex-a-lite fan on the motor, and dual electric flex-a-lite suckers on your oversize radiator....water wetter will still lower your coolant operating temperature. Like I said before...its all physics. For all you non-believers.... the earth also is not flat.

I have to agree with Steve it cannot reduce temperature below the thermostat opening temp. And that is a law of physics..................

Wouldn't life be easier if we were all sheep! I never said it wouldn't work in any situation, just not in a normally operated SRT with the factory thermostat. I have read the Water Wetter Tech Info sheet. Their test was done on an engine run at conditions that allowed it to reach a steady state water temperature of 202 to 228 degrees. Well above the 160 degree thermostat installed.

Use it in all our racecars and it works pretty well. I have never seen as huge a reduction as they state, but I have always had a reduction of some degree.

Don't Drill It!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Just because it is "required" in Texas doesn't mean all of us have done it. I will risk a "fix it" ticket to not spoil that beautiful face...

I completely agree with you!! It's required here, but for something I can only drive 6 months a year... It's worth the risk!
