TracTuff RBB/ RBC Billet Water Neck w/ Swirl Tank - RWD
Something new for all your rear wheel drive k swappers!! This swirl tank takes advantage of wasted space in the small pocket between the Skunk2 Ultra Street or Ultra Race intake manifold and firewall and offers a premier solution for bleeding the cooling system; which would otherwise be a real project.
The swirl tank starts with a beautifully machined flange that incorporates the largest port possible within the OEM gaskets footprint as well as a 1/2" NPT heater port. You can chose from a list of options to make the product as unique as your project; including outlet position, accessory ports for aftermarket sensors and/ or turbo and wastegate feeds, and radiator cap bung types.
About the radiator cap bungs... the domestic style has a 1/8" NPT port and the import version has a 1/16" NPT for connection to an overflow. The domestic version uses any early model (mid 70's through late 80's Chevy) cap and the import version uses early model Honda (88'-91' Civic/ CRX and 90'-93' Integra) cap.
NOTE: Made to Order... usually a 2-3 day lead time - Contact before ordering if you need a firm ETA - If you are interested in a specific design that varies from this, please email us at email@example.com. If using AN lines we also recommend designing the upper radiator hose so that there is droop/ give so the engines movement and does not push/ pull on the radiator and fatigue any parts. The tank is welded so that it sits level when bolted to an engine leaned back 15° (exhaust side).
1/1/19 Update: Due to the stress placed on the brackets/ braces, a plinth can be added to distribute the load and increase strength.
