has anyone ever had any problems with magnesium intakes ??? im thinking of getting a crowler setup but heard that you cant put antifreze in them becuase its eats the magnesium some reason or another is this true or not ??...and how does it affect the metal if someone would care to tell me -it just sounds like the stupidist thing i ever heard of- cant put antifreeze in a magnesium intake that has all the cooling capabilities..thanks for any responces

Wow! Everything (almost) eats magnesium. Magnesium is one of the most chemically reactive metals. It's probably the water in the antifreeze that's the culprit, not the antifreeze itself. You might check the race type antifreeze that you don't mix with water. Can't remember the name, but if no one else comes up with the name, I'll post it tomorrow. It may not react with the Magnesium like the water mix type.

Here's the company that does the trick anti....
They make a antifreeze that doesn't boil till over 300 degrees, without a pressure cap, and doesn't involve water. They'll gladly send you a info package.
