Aluminum Degas bottle

After building my custom intake I had rerouted the coolant back to the degas bottle instead of through the intake. When rerouting to the degas bottle I did not want to restrict flow out of the oil cooler by going to a 3/8 hose. I wanted to keep the 3/4" hose coming out of the cooler so I decided to build a custom degas bottle that would allow me to run the 3/4 hose. Here are a couple pics

Any pics of the intake? I'm a decent hand at aluminum and I'm trying to decide to cut and modify the OEM intake or to build a custom one. When I tear into it this summer to bulletproof it I want to have as much parts as I can. Planning on doing all the prep for Compounds and then do them and injectors next year.

Dude, sweet aluminum work! I run the gogo manifold that directs coolant direct back to degas though 3/8 line. Many of us running it for years with no issues. That's a low pressure system. Nice degas tank though!

Nice job, what are you sealing the coverplates with? I was thinking of using Orings but you would have to have enough material available for the groove. I'm going to pick up one from the Scrap Yard and see what I can do. When you said custom intake. I was picturing the $4000 ram air one elite sells.

Thanks. I know there are people running the 3/8 hose with no problems but I didn't like the idea of cutting the flow in half. It also gave me reason to build a cool tank

Looks very cool. Have you pressure tested it yet?

This was a concern of mine also but when I run it (at least at idle) the flow is pretty much a trickle through the 3/8 line. At higher rpm it may be more though? But I have had truck runnin and directed flow into a bucket and it just dribbles out. Probably higher pressure at higher rpm.

Yes i have been running it for the last couple of days


Jetjock that's interesting to know I never really tested the amount of flow seems like there would be a decent amount of flow even at idle
