TracTuff RBB/RBC Swirl Pot - V3
A duplicate of the super popular V1SR swirl tank I make for the PRB/ PRC cylinder head is now available for the RBB/ RBC/ RSP cylinder head!
I recommend this version whenever possible because it incorporates several features that I simply cannot build into other versions, due to space constraints. A great use of space for those of you that don't have things that conflict with it; it has a high entry/ low outlet, a substantial bracket to help support the assembly, and an outlet position that allows for the best plumbing options possible. And by best, I mean it allows for more hose to be used and reduces bad hose routing.
This swirl pot starts with a beautifully machined 6061-T6 flange that incorporates the largest port possible within the OEM gaskets footprint and a 1/2" NPT heater port. You can choose to have any number of accessory bung options added to the tank in any open space. The outlet itself can be configured for standard hose (1.25" OD) or -16 male flare.
The hardware kit includes four M8 stainless steel socket head bolts, a heater port plug, and a pair of o-rings. The swirl pot is welded so that it sits level when bolted to an engine leaned back 15° (OEM position) for the traditional option and leaned forward 8° (intake side) for the gangster lean engine mount option.
Space between the swirl pot and the flange make the rear upper mounting bolt a challenge to get to without the right tools. If you don't already own one, you may want to add a 6mm Stubby L-Key.
NOTE: Made to Order - Contact for ETA - If you are interested in a specific design that varies from this, please email us at email@example.com. The V3 swirl pot DOES NOT natively fit/ work with the EURO R or TSX type transmission.
The cap bung has a 1/16" NPT port for connection to an overflow and uses early model Honda radiator caps; such as an 88'-91' Civic/ CRX or 90'-93' Integra. If you are using AN lines, I 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.
Due to the location of the swirl pot, the heater hose fitting I usually include does not fit. If you would like to retain heat, I can weld a 1/2" NPT bung to the back of the swirl pot for an additional $45 (includes fitting and clamp).
