Disclaimer : I totally ripped this idea off PGD on mx5nutz
I’ve been looking around for a reasonably priced expansion tank that would fit in the void behind the front bumper. come across a few possibles, but nothing that made me want to put my hard earned pennies down.
Then i was at a MX5nutz meet at the old post office just off jnc 38 of the M1 and PGD was there. I like PGD, he’s a clever guy, great with a camera , has some skills, and drives an awesome turbod white mk1. he is pretty much in the top 10 most blamed people when the list is drawn up on the reasons i started this whole project, his was the first turbo mx5 i went out in, on my first MX5nutz meet…… i have wanted one ever since…. in fact, i’m gonna have to write that blame list. (now done )
Well PGD popped his bonnet and showed us all his very nice engine bay, complete with home made expansion bottle and catch can, made out of sigg aluminum drinks bottles. he describes it well in his build thread
So i decided to knock together one of my own. My expansion bottle is gonna be hidden, and i am a littl short of time, so mine isn’t as quality as Phils. but i’m happy enough with it for 5 quid
Still need to drill another hole in it and mount it, but will get that done this weekend
