Has anyone changed the coolant in their acura with Peak Long Life 50/50 prediluted coolant instead of Honda Coolant? Any problems after doing this?

You shouldn't have much issue with it, but it seems like the Honda coolant keeps to water temps a little bit lower.

I emailed Peak Tech Dept with the following question:
Does HONDA coolant keep the water temperature lower than Peak coolant?

They replied with:
"Glycol is glycol so therefore it does not matter."

Interesting. Maybe it's because I run more water in my mixture since I don't really have to worry about freezing temps here in so-cal. My race cars run 100% water :D
