Use what the brand you are using recommends.
Remember that coolant doesnt actually cool very well but is simply there to prevent the water from boiling or freezing and prevent corrosion. The water is what actually transfers most of the heat.
To answer the question though, 40% coolant 60% Water

I agree with luken, as hot as these engines run water is what provides the majority heat transfer and if not running in low temps Id run 40/60.
