    hey guy how can you delete the coolant expansion tank?
    reason i want to remove it is because its ugly
    I've installed a procharger and need more room, it also uses one of the tubes as support which i hate.

    You need it there for room as the coolant expands. But you can go to a different style and relocate it elsewhere in the engine bay.

    sorry i meant to replace the tank not delete it, i guess i'm asking what style should i use and where to buy it? i bought a cylinder type one from ebay, but it has a small 1/4 line and cant use it with my current stock hoses.

    its not too hard to add a bung to the tank that would fit.
