Coolant for superchargers

I have a Roush mustang with an inner cooled supercharger. What is recommended for a coolant for this system?

I use water/water wetter in summer. Add some antifreeze for winter.

I also drain mine 20 or so times a year so results may vary...

That is exactly what I do,r/0 water and 2 bottles of water wetter. But I don't drain mine 20 times a year....why?

Overkill. I can see once per season, but almost twice a month is insane.

I've also been looking for a better alternative to standard coolant for my s/c. was there a substantial difference using water wetter?

Are you using distilled water so you don 't get deposits from the water?

Ice tank for the track. I drain the water wetter mix before leaving the house. Run pure ice at the track and add more water wetter before headed home. I drain the tank after every pass, add ice and circulate, drain tank add more ice and go make a pass.

I have an expanded capacity metal tank btw, holds around 5lb of ice.

Sent from my massive johnson.
