water boiling point is 212*F, 50/50 boiling point is about 223*F. the cars run at about 212, so with 10% antifreeze ill still be above that, granted not by much. I've had good success with the 70/30, maybe ill just keep it at that, ill have to do some research

The boiling point raises under pressure. Boiling point raises 2-3 degrees per lb of pressure. So 18psi cap would raise it up to 266ish
