Question Small radiator overflow tank american GC8 ?

I just finished a front mount intercooler conversion on my 2.5RS, and unfortunately I had to get rid of the huge oem tank on the driver side.

Turbo XS refuses to sell me their small overflow tank, and I do not even know what it looks like.

Where can I find a small tank for a gc8?

Any advice apreciated, I am kinda stumped.

Yeah, I found that by searching - but it was a discussion between 2 WRX owners, I wonder if the corolla trick will work on a GC8 2.5RS. Also, I wanted something flashy, its a show car.

I had the same problem with My Rs when I got the wrx swap. I had no radiator resivoir tank. what i ended up doing was relocating my battery to the trunk, and useing a universal tank (pep boys) in the old batteries spot. Also I think forgedmotorsports.com has some aluminum tanks that are smaller.

Yeah, I found alot of tanks on summitracing.com , but once again, its hard to tell wether they will fit, because online pictures and measurements mean very little when it actually comes time to pound it in

There is a good old domestic race shop down the street from me, I am gonna see if they have something good tomorrow.

The funniest thing is that TURBO XS is literally 5 mins down the street from me, and they are refusing to sell it to me hahahahahahahahah so funny.

The nicest thing to do is to get a JDM/Europe overflow. It fits in the driver side wheel well and the filler is in front of the battery.

I have one of these sitting in my garage if you're interested.

Let me know.
