Very much a mixed bag, the lifetime product has a lower thermal capacity than water based coolant. This means the average temperature will be higher. For the NA lotus owners, this is a small penalty. For supercharged owners, who are concerned about higher temps and heat soaking, perhaps not such a good thing. If your coolant temp is higher, your block is hotter, conducting heat to the intake manifold. The serious plusses are reduced corrosion, steam bubbles not forming in the water jackets, which reduce the risk of warpage at extreme temperatures (when overheated) and a long life for the coolant. As a note: the evens cooling website must be quite ashamed of their product's thermal capacity; they do not post their products thermal capacity. Keep in mind, water and anti-freeze are a tough act to follow, when it comes to cooling capacity. The evenscooling website sells higher flow waterpumps for corvette LS engines, this is likely to compensate for the lower thermal capacity of the coolant. It is also a back-door admission there may be a problem when the standard pump is used.
