Default ugrade to your coolant?

Just saw this on another forum, but what are the benifits (if any) running something like this in a 3.8 vs regular or dexcool coolant?

DEX is hard on gaskets, as we have seen in the S2'* with the plastic LIM gaskets

This coolant appears to have good qualities to reduce heat. Our engines are very good at creating heat. Maybe with the known intake gasket leaks and what not, this may be a viable solution? A nice helper for modding possibly too? I would be interested to see operating temps before and after as well as KR readings at WOT.

For our capacity, you're talking over 100 bucks. That would take some pretty good proof to get me to go for it.

How about use in an intercooler system? Less volume of fluid.
