I you are having to deal with a lot of heat, I would recommend (regardless
of which coolant you choose) finding your local RedLine dealer and
purchasing a bottle of Water Wetter. I use it along with Sierra coolant and
it keeps the cooling system VERY efficient. I'm not sure how much it costs
as I was given the bottle I used.
