Default Overflow Volume

I'm planning to replace the factory overflow with an aftermarket. I've searched some to locate details on the factory overflow to determine volume, with no success. How much does the factory overflow hold? Not full, but within the hot & cold designated volume. Thanks!

Default Re: Overflow Volume

Mark yours cold, and hot. If it moves much, manually fill it to the high line, then use a turkey baster (or whatever) to extract down to the low line, and measure the amount you removed. Add some for extreme conditions. That should represent the volume you need. I'm personally not a big fan of the overflow tank... It's a massive space thief in any engine bay. Unless your having a cooling issue, I think a small vented canister would suffice, for the purpose of expansion and vacuum ventilation, with an occasional purge of a small amount of coolant. I'll be mounting a very small version somewhere completely out of the way. I'd prefer to eliminate it all together.
Nvizn and chuzz like this.

I thought mine had a hole, until I removed it. Turns out it's the turbo coolant line..... =/

^^^^ Bummer, man. That'll cost more than another overflow jug. And it's more of a pain to change out too.
