Thank you. You have rated this product.

Direct replacement for your factory plastic coolant expansion tank. Made in the USA, all aluminum with beautiful TIG welding. Constructed with internal baffles and a machined aluminum neck that takes a factory cap. All of the inlets and outlets are positioned to match up with the factory hoses. The tank mounts to the same location as the factory tank and is built with the same dimensions for an easy fit.

As these cars age, the factory plastic tank is a common failure point because the plastic gets brittle and cracks. The RX8 relies on this tank to be a pressurized part of the cooling system, which means that as soon as a crack forms the system loses pressure and the engine overheats. We've had more and more people bring in cars with blown motors due to this simple failure, and along with a new expansion tank now they need a new motor as well, so we decided it was time for a "lifetime" solution. This tank is the solution. It will not fail over time like the factory tank, and looks great as well!

Installation NOTES:
While the factory squeeze-clamps on the hoses can be re-used, they get weaker the more they are removed/installed and having a tight seal on all the hoses is important since this tank is pressurized. We recommend changing the squeeze clamps out for worm drive hose clamps which can be found at any auto parts store.

REVIEWS

I think that Brian Goodwin is the perfect example of what is good about the aftermarket industry. He is one of the few vendors that actually cares about his customers. He is the example that all companies should be trying to emulate when it comes to customer service. Not to mention his ingenuity and desire to improve on what is already a great car. I have never had a "bad" experience with Good-win-racing. Well, except for the constant temptation to SPEND MORE MONEY.

I should thank you. The parts ordered have greatly enhanced my MX-5 and they were received well before I could have reasonably expected them. I'm an enthusiastic new customer. Regards, John
