Coolant Overflow Tank

Hey all,

Does anyone happen to know the stock coolant overflow reservoir min & max ratings in terms of fl oz on our 5th gens? I'm looking at either the ~29 oz Mishimoto or ~22 oz Rywire overflow tanks since I'm doing a battery relocation soon.

In addition, does anyone know the mounting hole patterns to either of these and if they fit anywhere in the radiator region without drilling holes? I'm liking the idea of having all Mishimoto reservoirs for the future.

Looking forward to good news!

Re: Coolant Overflow Tank

Either of those should work just fine.
I'm using a 25oz and it works good enough for me

Re: Coolant Overflow Tank

I use one designed for a Civic/Teg that has an arm welded on for easy attachment... it only works if you have an aftermarket rad though

Re: Coolant Overflow Tank

I think it's a tad bit odd that the Mishimoto one isn't on their website. I'm wondering if it is actually produced by them...

I saw yours earlier in the week and liked the way you had it done. Was that weld on the original piece or did you just mod it?

Re: Coolant Overflow Tank

It was original to the piece. I had to bend it slightly to clear the hood but it looks great imo
