Default Coolant Additives

Did a search and came up empty, anyone using coolant additives to reduce water temp like Redline water wetter,- 20 below or RC. We used these in Karting and Spec Miata and noticed temps drop as much as 20 degree. Was wondering if it would impact the tune on the car in the turbo environment. I would assume it would have a similar effect as spraying but as a constant. Any actual experience out there with this type of product in the inter cooled turbo application?

I was using the -20 Below in the Karts and Miatas and we saw the diff on the temp gauge. I assumed the Redline product worked the same, I guess you cant assume.

I use redline water wetter and it seems to work for me, the temp gauge that never moves from the center now doesn't even get to the center, it's three squiggly lines lower than it used to be on the temp gauge...

I saw no difference with water wetter. Then again, I saw no difference with a Crucial thermostat and rad cap, either..... But I really don't have temp problems either, so ......
