I have been running Evens in the Jetta for ~10 months. I don't think it is really worth it on the street but at the end of a long hot day on the road course I was very happy to have it. My water injection transfer pump failed reducing the WI by ~ half. The improved heat removal from the combustion chamber area made the loss of WI almost unnoticeable. This is remarkable as I am hitting 12 to 13 psi boost with a static CR of 10.4:1.

I will be using Evens for my race rabbit when the new engine goes in.

How about how it reduces the cavitation in engines, and is there any more positive effect over water/coolant if it were to leak in to the oil, or elsewhere?

Dex is rumored to be pretty hard on gaskets and stuff. It lasts a long time, but I've swapped all mine out for regular green antifreeze.
