The Evans waterless coolant is yellow but I have no experience with it so I don't know how well it cools or if it would agree with the Edelbrock internals. Any help or tips are appreciated!
I've got a Mishimoto radiator and 165 stat and run a 50/50 Prestone green in the car year round not too far from you, including track days, and not a single hiccup. If you go with that for engine cooling then you can use whatever blue you like for the SC.



Conversely, you could use the Prestone orange "any car" in the SC without having to change the engine coolant but I haven't seen anyone do that yet. They all seem to be running blue.

Edelbrock does not supply you with any tools and the only "special" tool you will need a fuel line release tool like model 545 from www.company23.com. You can disconnect the fuel line with zip ties or other thin, stiff plastic but the actual tool makes it easier and it's cheap. (I might even lend you mine if you're close enough to the White Marsh area )

$15 for one size?!
I have this set: https://www.amazon.com/Performance-T.../dp/B000N37D7W picked up ages ago from I think Advance or Autozone or something with any size you could need. It's either the 5/16" little blue or 3/8" little grey one, I forget. @BR-ZED Just go easy and there's no issue with damaging the fuel line or seals. Had no problem whatsoever after an engine swap. Definitely don't mess around with using screwdrivers or anything makeshift to disconnect the lines.

Out of curiosity, that's 81lbs added, but how many lbs removed? I'm guessing the earlier style plastic intake manifold is probably lighter than the 2017+, but how many stock components are permanently removed in the conversion?

That's actually the one I ordered since @jayjay06 got the lisle one and it didn't fit the Edelbrock reservoir. I'll try this one and let you know if it fits. Haven't gotten there yet.

I also got the company 23 fuel line tool. Read bad reviews on the generic sets and wanted something that I knew would work. I've owned nothing but Subarus for the last 16 years, so shouldn't be an issue. Except for my wife's cars but that's because Subaru made the base impreza so underpowered.

Delta is 62.5 according to the link below, considering all the stuff coming off the car. I'll try to find a link.

The Lisle did fit when it was the old style skinny surge tank...
