Sorry to drag up an old thread. I really like your coolant system update. Couple of questions.

With the bleed valves you installed, do you know the size of the ones you installed?

Do you leave them open internally all the time? If so, I assume the bleed valves are there to limit flow purely for continuous bleeding purposes?

I fitted a pair of bleed nipples and left them permanently open.

The bleed hoses do by-pass the intercoolers, but the holes are about one percent of the cross section area of the main pipes, so its a tiny loss of flow. There are other mitigators.

Those ports on top of the IC's really should be bleeders, not fillers, as they're on the top, not the bottom.

!Keeping this thread alive!

Hey guys, I did this mod and it was awesome! Until 3 weeks later when the Wilwood resevoir broke and leaked out all the coolant it was holding. Anyone else had this issue? If so, have you found another resevoir that works better (i.e. without splitting at the base)?

Regards

I have been using an aluminum swirl put by the starter batter, working well for 6 months now.

I have had zero issues with my Wildwood reservoir for three years now. Did the clamp come off or did it break?

Bringing up an old thread. I just added this to my car. I was getting crazy hot IATs (145-160 on the freeway and about 176-180 at idle). Installed the new bosch pump, burped the system and added the overflow tank. Most recent test showed the IATs at 110 on freeway and 135 sitting in traffic. The new pump helped a lot. I was not getting any codes but felt the power was down. I also think there was a lot of air in the system. So, I'm very happy with the results.

That's great WikedV12! Keep your eye on it for the first couple weeks. Since the reservoir is so small it will burp out air right after the install. After a couple weeks it will stabilize and you only need to check it every several months. Good luck with your new pump!

Take these parts...... are all OEM and it works fine. I did the mod too and i am very satisfied with it.

It is very easy to install....
