    Radiator Over Flow tank

    PLEASE HELP!!!! hey guys I went with a FMIC and due to the size of the piping I had to remove my radiator over flow tank. So after realizing this I ordered one from importimageracing "http://www.importimageracing.com/weapon-r-universal-oil-catch-can.html" and used a pepsi bottle in the meantime.

    Ok so this is where I need help!!! ever since I changed from the pepsi bottle to the new overflow tank, my car starts to over heat when I am at red light or stop signs, but as soon as a start driving again the temperature begins to drop. I believe this over flow tank has a very poor design.

    So what I am looking for is if anyone knows a perfect overflow tank that I can get to use to solve my problem. please help!!!!!!!


    Thanks,
    DOHBOY

    When you installed, did you happen to disconnect the fans at all? The fans run to keep the car cool when sitting.

    Also, did you burp the system?

    Also, did you ask Impreza2.0 about the Weapon R tank?
