      Here is my 1.6NA with a k26. It's about to. Be replaced by an AAZ since its got some serious piston slap, I'll probably rebuild.

      mind telling me what u platted your parts with? looks gold, but i always assumed gold platting would be too expensive to be feasible, but i am often times miss led
      zinc, or polished copper maybe?

      nolan: early mk1s came with a radiator with built in expansion tank, not needing an external


      heres one on summit http://www.summitracing.com/parts/PLI-431260/?rtype=10

      should be able to find elsewhere for cheaper, sure someone will chime in.

      often times for sale on these fs forums, i have picked up a few on here in the past

      Only problem with the ones with the integrated filler is that they have less cooling surface area, but if that's not a concern then it might not be an issue.
