dump the red dyed coolant from ek, that will stain everything, including the tubing, the res, and leave residue in the blocks. Go with a bigger id tubing, 3/8th inch, or 1/2 inch. And I would suggest going with these instead of the koolance things. http://www.sidewindercomputers.com/big1sishmuad.html

It won't dye your tubing(I assume), but I'm pretty sure it would still clog blocks because it's just a bunch of particles suspended in water. The easiest alternative is to just use colored tubing

I used the EK blue coolant for 18 months with absolutely no staining or gunking whatsoever. However, I have clear coolant in my current loop as I have white hosing.

I thought the EK was good coolant. So blue did not stain?

None of the EK coolant will stain.
