Other than factory coolant overflow's: Pics please
My bumper mount overflow has cracked. And the line coming from the under hood fill tank, looks cheap IMO. And the line going from it to the water pump, the line is old and cracked. So i want to do a billet upper and lower bottle with -AN lines. And pics of others?
I did a billet upper.. 2.5 ... And routed a line to the ground for overflow. this is on my tt Viper.. Works perfect...
Doesn't that defeat the design of the coolant system by not having an overflow tank to push and pull coolant from? Or have you taken care of that by changing the way the pressure tank functions in the system ?
There is no reason to have a coolant tank under the bumper... The only time it will overflow into that bumper tank is if you overheat. Hense the reason it is an over flow tank... Im not saying you can't keep it for peace of mind... I don't have it. Never had an issue
I would not get rid of the overflow tank. It's not just used when the car over heats. The radiator cap acts like a pressure relief valve and pushes coolant into the tank. As the engine cools it creates a vacuum and sucks coolant/water back into the radiator to ensure it's full. If the overflow tank is empty then the engine will suck in air creating a cooling issue.
