want to switch to a radiator with a degas bottle

Postby Mater » Wed Jul 05, 2017 8:11 pm

as the title said i want to switch to a radiator set up similar to a lot of newer cars where the radiator does not have a fill cap but the cap is on a pressurized tank


is there any that have build in engine oil coolers like the stock 4.3 rad?

The degas bottle will need to be higher than the radiator which will be tough for the S10. You can probably have one made or find one with the right measurements. Just more to leak/go wrong for a V8 swap.

i was just thinking it would be easier to move forward with out messing up the rad support completely forgot it had to be higher

what i would really like is one with the filler neck extended out towards the engine

Yes you can get them with a divorced water neck.
