I know the owner of EI and talked to him last week about putting some in my '71 with a 350. Here is what he told me:
"As for "will it help," I don't know, individual results vary. Does it run hot now? If it does, it might help, but if it doesn't, then you likely won't see any visible difference. Keep in mind, if your engine is not running hot, how cool it can go down is limited by the thermostat. Even if you fill the engine with ice cubes, it's only going to go as low as the thermostat allows, because it will stay closed until it reaches it's desired temperature.
Now, if you do not have a temperature issue, but just want to use a good product free from contaminants like dissolved minerals and chemicals that can crystalize and clog the system, then Engine Ice is a good product for you."
