In my experience, Redline has produced some exceptional products. I've
used their MTL, 75/90, 75/90NS, and SI-1 injector cleaner with fantastic
results. The one tim eI tried Water Wetter, I did not have the
instrumentation to verify if it worked, and I haven't had a cooling
problem on any other car since then, so I can't say fro sure on the WW.

Water Wetter is essentially a material which reduces the surface tension
of the water, which helps reduce the size of air bubbles when boiling
occurs (or turbulence I suppose) so the coefficient of heat transfer is
slightly improved. Maybe Bob Myers can help out a little on the
