What you are talking about is the ability to operate the engine at a higher temperature. Yes, this can be done with the waterless coolant, but in doing so you are subjecting the oil, gaskets and seals to higher temperatures as well the operational lives of which you maybe shortening.

Purely on a metal corrosive/compatibility issue certainly using this stuff is not a bad idea. But doing it to run the engine hotter than design is iffy. Particularly if the supporting components (oil, gaskets and seals) are not designed to run at higher temps.

Just my 2 cents...

I run waterless coolant and experimented with a higher temp t-stat on my cooling system in my Powerstroke. I ran into problems with engine oil temp being too high for my comfort but that might be due to a variety of factors (hotter tunes, higher volume oil pump, a possibly clogged oil cooler, etc.). Anyway it definitely got the VO hotter - just a suggestion to monitor your EOT if you go that route.
