Hi guys, is the Tectaloy V PLUS Orange a good coolant for a VY SS. How much coolant do you add from empty.

yeah, i got told by i dont know how many people - just use the holden stuff. there is no gain from using anything else and its competitively priced, GM spend millions on quality control, technology development. good enough for me :)

vy ss commodore 5.7ltr
use holden genuine, comes in a 5ltr container from your dealer, use that and the rest water, will be all good. i always try and use genuine were ever possible unless univoidable or a massive price difference between gen and non genuine if simmilar product.
