below the "full" line within a 4 month period for a forced induction car? This is second time i've had to add coolant after my SC installation. The first time it happened, I was told not to worry since the shop had flushed out my radiator and air bubbles probably caused the radiator to "burp" causing the coolant to overflow, etc.
this time, im not so sure? I havent noticed any leaks, etc., so Im wondering if this is normal. Any suggestions?

Also, is it really necessary to use a 50/50 coolant/H20 mixture when only adding about a 1 1/2 cups of coolant? Surprisingly that's all that was required to fill it to the "full" line. What are some of the problems that I might run into by not using the proper coolant/H20 mix?
