I offer this

SUPER+ is new coolant providing dramatic improvements in heat transfer and viscosity that make the new fluid a "pour-in," not requiring changes to cooling system components. Conversion to SUPER+ waterless coolant from the use of conventional antifreeze and water coolant mixes, to take advantage of the benefits of non-aqueous engine cooling, is now simple to accomplish.
SUPER+ waterless coolant virtually eliminates boil over in gasoline or diesel engines - the waterless coolant allows engines to tolerate running hotter, without boiling over, and allows the cooling system to run at very low or no pressure. Because there is no water in the system engines operating with SUPER+ will be free from corrosion and electrolysis, and the engines will run well no matter how hard they are driven or how hot or cold the environment is.
A blend of non-aqueous ingredients, SUPER+ retains all of the benefits of UFOs original SUPER coolant, while improving upon its thermal conductivity by about 32 percent and reducing its viscosity by about 65 percent. It is perfectly suited for the demands of any hard working engine, and there are no plumbing or pump changes needed to use this coolant.
A cooling system according to UFOs technology uses a non-water-based, high boiling point coolant (over 350) and controls the temperature of the coolant substantially below its boiling point. This is in sharp contrast to conventional water based coolant systems which operate near the boiling point of the coolant. In conventional systems, locally generated coolant vapor may not condense but rather form an insulating barrier between the coolant jacket metal and the liquid coolant, causing hot spots to develop.
Coolant Vapor Condenses Immediately
In UFOs' waterless systems, any locally generated vapor is immediately condensed back to liquid coolant and an insulating layer of vapor can't develop.
Another advantage is that cooling system pressure is minimal, prolonging the life of hoses and other components, which lowers replacement and related maintenance costs.
SUPER+ works well with liquid-to-liquid oil coolers and radiators. It is important to remember that although the thermal conductivity of water is great, conversely for water vapor it is about zero. Although not a requirement, engines running with SUPER+ can be operated, by choice, at higher coolant temperatures while control of metal temperatures is maintained. This fact permits the selection of higher fan control temperatures and less fuel robbing parasitic drag.
Looking ahead, SUPER+ is ideally suited for handling the extra heat that will be coming from the EGR coolers in 2002 engines for NOx emissions control. With increased cooling system load from the EGR cooling, conventional systems will likely be unable to handle the extra heat without larger and heavier radiators and redesigned engines. SUPER+ coolant held to a temperature well below its boiling point, can successfully transfer all of that heat without requiring larger radiators.

Efficiency at Higher Temperatures
Engines run more efficiently when they're hot. But up until recently, inefficient cooling has limited how hot you can run a gasoline or diesel engine before serious damage occurs. Conventional coolants containing water boil (vaporize) around 225F near sea level. Cooling systems are pressurized to raise the average coolant boiling point, to around 250F, but that doesn't solve the real cooling problem, which occurs inside the water jackets of an engine.
Inside the water jacket, heat-stressed metal exceeds the thermal capacity of conventional coolant. The coolant boils, forming a vapor barrier at the metals surface. This vapor barrier acts as an insulator and prevents efficient heat transfer from the metal to the coolant, causing localized overheating and vaporization of the coolant.
Furthermore, this super-heated, vaporized conventional water based coolant doesn't fully condense back into liquid until it circulates back to the radiator. Once it'* returned to the radiator, it remains in a gaseous barrier to the heat trying to exit to the air until it'* fully recondensed. This means the conventional coolant is constantly losing efficiency as it circulates through the hot engine, and even through the radiator. The problem worsens as the system operates hotter because the radiator cannot condense all the vapor and it passes back into the engine.
SUPER Coolant Cures Many Problems!
UFOs SUPER (without the plus), the immediate predecessor of SUPER+, is propylene glycol with proprietary additives. The benefits of SUPER have been proven in thousands of applications. Of particular interest to users of heavy-duty diesels, the UFOs waterless coolants avoid pump and cylinder liner cavitation erosion, again because of the large separation between operating temperature and coolant boiling point.
The anti-corrosion additives in SUPER are stable and remain in solution for the life of the coolant (at least 500,000 miles) and no SCAs (supplementary coolant additives) are necessary. SUPER also has almost no electrical conductivity, eliminating the damage to metals, hoses and gaskets caused by electrolysis.
Both UFOs SUPER and SUPER+ are used as pure coolant - no water added. The non-aqueous solution boils at 370F (SUPER) or 375F (SUPER+), greatly reducing vaporization and eliminating vapor problems. Both coolants bathe the entire cooling jacket (permanent surface "wetting"), and significantly improve coolant surface effectiveness. Heat transfers more efficiently from the metal to the liquid coolant, and is carried off to the radiator for more effective elimination. Furthermore, any vaporized coolant recondenses while still in the engine, so the coolant continues to absorb damaging heat on its way to the radiator.
Run Hotter with No Trapped Air
When you eliminate trapped engine heat in the cooling system, you can run hotter, which increases your engine'* efficiency. And with UFOs SUPER+ Coolant, no cooling system modifications are needed to allow the vehicle operator to raise an engine'* operating temperature and thus its power output and fuel efficiency.
This isn't theory - it'* in actual use by diesel truck fleets and owner/operators who report gains of up to 1.5 miles per gallon fuel savings in engines modified to take advantage of UFOs SUPER Coolant'* increased cooling efficiency.
Because UFOs SUPER and SUPER+ Coolants don't "after-boil" (boil over or vent) in the operational temperature range of a gasoline or diesel engine cooling system, you can change to a low-pressure or no-pressure cooling system (0.0 to 7.0 PSIG). While anyone servicing a cooling system must remain cautious around hot liquids, the danger of an e discharge of coolant from al cap removal or component rupture is minimized or eliminated. Low or no-pressure systems also enjoy reduced hose and gasket leakage, and longer cooling system component life. SUPER or SUPER+ Coolants are safe for use with all metals and totally non-corrosive to many.
Lifetime Coolants
SUPER and SUPER+ are virtually "lifetime" coolants. Conventional coolant must be flushed and changed at regular intervals to eliminate contaminants and renew its effectiveness. But the limits of UFOs SUPER and SUPER+ Coolants have yet to be reached - they contain no water and only a few lifetime additives. The elimination of water virtually stops corrosion, water pump and cylinder cavitation. This means major maintenance savings to all forms of operators.
UFOs SUPER+ Coolant out-performs conventional coolant in freezing weather too. A 50/50 mix of conventional coolant and water typically freezes around -40F. UFOs SUPER+ Coolant - pure, with no water - remains liquid until -40F, when it contracts slightly and merely turns into a light viscous slurry. It will not freeze solid and expand.
Non-Toxic to Mammals
SUPER+ Coolant has been determined to be non-toxic in mammalian testing. Independent tests on laboratory rats exposed to UFOs SUPER+ Coolant showed no ill effects. The coolant is essentially non-toxic and non-hazardous in all EPA "GLP acute oral toxicity" tests because UFOs has developed a proprietary formula based on a blending of chemicals called "DIOLS," including propylene glycol. An Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) ruling is being sought regarding an anticipated "safe" classification for the SUPER+ Coolant.
The SUPER controlling chemical, propylene glycol, is non-poisonous, and used in such products as pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, and even foods and therefore SUPER is already classified as "safe".

Names have been changed until its on my site.

well and for fun.

Yes but ...... it solves a lot of our cooling issues that we commonly run into. Since our rad and tranny cooler are very close this is important. This will also be good for our pumps. More efficient cooler stock unit less need for extra aux units.

Ill have it up on the site Tomorrow.

This is what alot of people overlook. The heat relationship between the trans and engine coolant is very close. Add the supercharger to that mix too. Lowering trans temps will in turn lower engine temps......lowering SC temps can too, and vice versa.
