Ditto. I ran the same DexCool in my RX7 race car for 3 years with no problems.
Engine failed finally and when torn down the coolant passages looked fine. In
fact, they looked better than any of the other 12a motors I had disassembled
that came out of street cars with green antifreeze. And I couldn't make that
motor overheat, even idling 20 minutes with no fan.
