I use full strength Advanced Auto Parts brand then mix it my self 'cause you get 2 gallons of coolant for about $2 more than the 1 gallon of 50/50. With the gaskets stay with OEM they seem to last longer and do a better job of holding up IMO. I put V-Force Reeds on my '05 and they ROCK!. But with the coolant def. buy the full strength an mix it yourself. :)

yeah, don't use cometic, I used cometic and I had problems like a coolant leak, and they just didn't line up right, the head gasket was stainless steel but the quality was not nearly as good as the oem Honda head gasket. I would also highly reccommend the hp coolant, it is freer flowing than automotive coolant I think and it is not too expensive. hope this helps.:)
