OP you can delete the bottom hose and put the Cap in the upper hose at this highest point then have the overflow go to a stand alone tank somewhere. I actually still have the parts for this somewhere in my garage if you want them minus the hoses. White03gtanger and myself both went this route then I changed gars when I built my own custom tank.

Kyle you can do it this way, All you do is take the outlet and run it to a stand alone reservoir tank.

Pate so if you get the inline coolant fill what would you do with the tank then? Can you drop it below the top of the radiator then?

Was you meaning that this tank would work?

I like this tank, will it work without the inline coolant fill then or will I still need it?

I was meaning in this picture, if you get the inline coolant fill like you are talking about where would you mount the expansion tank then? Does it have to be the highest point in the system then?

Yes a tank like that would work it would basically function like a old fox bodies system would. It don't really matter about the placement. Myself and Sharbait tried the cheap plastic containers and they would blow the cheap plastic lids off so a good solid one like your looking at would work.

that coolant tank will work, you will use the bottom port if you want it to be able to siphon coolant back into the system like the old fox bodies.


bone stock from the factory!

bumping because i never really got a clear answer. if i run my cap in the upper radiator hose, does the expansion tank still need to be the highest point in the system? i would like to mount it remotely in order to hide it better.
