Default hotter than hell

i just changed my coolant. its sitting above the full line in the resvior. my engine heats a lot faster than i think it should but stays right between the hot and cold on the thermostat. then it takes a lot longer for it to cool down. could this be because of the wrong mixture or the wrong kind of antifreeze (i put in pride antifreeze and coolant.)? i didnt do exactly 50/50 because some water spilled out. should i add a little more water? Thanks for the help.

im pretty sure its just cause ur cars a turbo. turbo's run hotter than n/a cars. dont worry. as long as u dont hit the red zone ur ok. and as for ur mixture, i only use coolant. or just antifreeze. i never mix or add water at all.

if you go and buy premix, your paying the same price as just coolant, but your getting half the coolant. it doesnt make sense to buy premix unless your really in a hurry. buy just coolant, pour some in, add some water. or run straight coolant like some people. i dont know if that helps or not.
