      i throw oil to the ground... minimal ammount, less than .5qt every 5k miles...

      but i guess it does make sense to keep it in a container to refill...

      Now that I think of it... What ever happened with that guy relocating his bubble into the front bumper area? I've been told the bubble was designed to be in the stock location exactly for gravity and pressure reasons(PSU told this, and was told from someone)

      So I'm curious to see how that is working for that guy...

      Its safe, just need to be sure to get the correct radiator cap, gravity burping the system is still possible. Coolant bubble is not as special as you may think. Its simply an expansion tank. Its big, because its top Fed. the cap is 21lbs. So when removing it, you only need to accommodate the pressure. With every pound of pressure the cap rises, the Boiling point goes up 2-3 degrees. So water boils at 212 the OEM system uses a20 pound cap. You've got a simple filler now though.

      I first bought a 14-18lb cap, it runs perfectly, but the pressure blows out coolant as It expands. And you'd have re fill nearly every day. The higher pressure cap, prevents that and the car runs just as she should. Think about the bottle in a simple term, its only an expansion tank and high pressure cap.
      god i love my car. it may not be fast, but it's crazy fun!

      You talking about the Forge metal coolant bottles they sell on Part4Euro? Id totaly get one if they didnt want over $400 for one, thats just rediculous in my book. I got lucky and got one of the Forge metal washer fluid bottles for only 70 bucks. One of the guys at Forge Motorsports was doing some cleanin out of their warehouse and they had two prototype ones sitting on the shelves that were painted black and alittle scratched up. He said since they werent in great shape hed cut me a deal so I got one. Deffinately a nice product.

      New front mount intercooler isin the mail! Pretty excited to get it bolted up. Going to change the look of the car completely! Now comes the question...

      Where should I mount my external oil cooler? Behind the fmic? In the fog grilles? In front of the fmic?

      Hey Tyler, have you cut the plug off the coolant bottle yet? I have to repaint mine so I'm looking to cut it off if possible. If not I'm gonna wire the plug back on and fully paint the bottle with vht.

      Oh and I figured out there is zero need for the small lines coming from the radiator, to the heater core, to the hard line behind the head. And into the return on the t stat. Its all gone now.

      Yeah the only thing I think that line did was make a high point coming out of the heater core/radiator to the bottle for overflow/burbing.

      So can I safely remove the hardline and all that nonsense while keeping the bottle?

      No. its only there FOR the bottle. It must be there, its essentially just a reservoir like most radiators, it follows the same concept. Heat, pressure goes in expansion takes place it fills...cold rad fluid contracts it creates vacuum and sucks it back in
