actually my syms cap is only 1.3 bar. same as stock.

no it didnt overheat, I got to my shop...let the car sit for like 45 minutes while I was busy. Then noticed a small blue puddle under the car...popped the hood....screamed outloud in terror, then removed the radiator and pressure tested it.

im lucky it didnt overheat.

stock is not 1.3, the stock radiator filler round cap with no ears it 1.3, but the one on the coolant tank mounted on the manifold is 1.1 bar factory. i see you replaced both with SYMS ones, im thinking one of you caps might be defective, as in stuck closed. you should have them tested.

hmm...forgot about that one....well i have an arc back up and I have the stockers too...I dont think this will be a problem with the new fluidyne, but I will still check them out.

keep it, no spout is better trust me. older WRX's and JDM STi's used to be spoutless.
i go to there shop every now and then, my uncle painted Ben's car (350Z).
