    Need Help With Custom Coolant Application

    Building a LS2/T56 Shelby Cobra replica. You may have seen the thread in AAG. Maybe not.

    Searched for a while on Tech and now Tech seems DOA if I try to post anything new; not sure if this will work but need some input.

    As you can see, on the cold side of the radiator, there's a nipple.


    Can I use that nipple to mate up with the steam crossover in this manner?


    I'd use a filler neck as shown with a bleeder line to a fill tank.

    Is that a proper design or am I way off-base?

    You can see the water pump output here, definitely above the radiator.

    Revised my thoughts arleady. What if I used an expansion tank like this http://www.summitracing.com/parts/CT...0/?image=large

    in a set up like this


    All I would need is a neck with two outputs on it. Jags That Run make them for LS swaps. One outlet would go to the overflow. The second would go to the steam crossover.
