I am planning on installing a Ford Racing Aluminum radiator, M-8005-MGT on my 2012 GT with the Roush supercharger. I have two questions: is the Roush intercooler coolant is completely separate from the radiator coolant, like two separate closed systems? and what is the coolant capacity of the new radiator? The owner's guide says the stock capacity is 13.0 quarts, or 3.25 gals. I am just not sure how much coolant I need to buy and if I need to account for the coolant in the radiator plus the coolant in the intercooler system.

Thanks for any help.

They are completely two separate systems. The reservoir mounts side by side with your existing one. I'm not sure the total amounts needed, Depends on the reservoir size and add in the hoses.

Thanks; I assumed it was two systems, just wanted to verify. I am assuming I will have to remove both the radiator reservoir and the intercooler reservoir to access/ replace the stock radiator so will need to refill both the new radiator/ radiator reservoir and the intcooler reservoir. The reservoir tanks are both stock; picture below.

Thanks again.
