yeah but I assume it of course isn't a permanent solution dude. It's just for fun, hell-of-it kind of deal...I mean look what kind of components he put in there

like i said a guy has done this for about 5 years so it is a possible long term solution. but ultimately you would want to seal it and replace the oil regularly if it were to be a permanent solution.

Antifreeze won't work. Antifreeze isn't what actually does the cooling, it's water. Your car will actually cool best on 100% water. Problem is that water freezes which then cracks your engine block and radiator core. Hence anti-freeze was made so that your coolant doesn't freeze. This is why they recommend a 50/50 mixture.

As long as you use distilled water.

Honestly it doesn't matter if you use distilled water. You can use regular tap water if you want

Tap water has ions and minerals which conduct electricity, a big no no if you are running electrical components in it.

Distilled water is "empty" water, after a while it will leach ions off your hardware and become able to conduct electricity.

Oil is the best thing here. Mainly mineral oil.
