OK, so I've got the small coolant bottle that is supposed to go to the right of the battery, but there is no way it will squeeze in that spot as things are now. Is it necessary to trim sheetmatal or modify the battery box to position it further out? What has everyone done to fit this thing? My car is a '97 if that matters.

Thanks!

Bob

Mine didn't. I have the bottle though. What I need to know is what it takes to get it to fit. The bottle is the same as what comes in the GReddy IC kit. Anyone with a GReddy FMIC care to comment?

I have the TRUST/Greddy and I didn't need to cut a thing, just put it in between the battery and the driver fender. Unless you have an alarm siren there, but then you can even just barely fit it in front of the battery under the hold-down bracket...

Thanks for the replies.

theman: Do you have any pics showing that part of your car? Did a bracket come with your IC kit?

ruup2it: I was thinking I could trim off the side of the battery tray to let the battery slide over a little, or maybe elongate the mounting holes some. What exactly did you modify?

Same here, my HKS Type-S didn't come with a coolant relocation tank, bought one from mvpmotorsports.com and it fits snugly between the battery and the front left fender.

I saw a pic of Mani's engine bay, and his is located between the battery and the back of the headlight assembly. If you don't feel like spending $45 for a small tank, go to the junkyard and look for a small coolant tank.

Sorry Bob, I really need to take some pictures for posting...
Mine didn't have a braket for the overflow tank, but the battery hold down kept it pinned down nicely just like the last guy said, in between the headlight and battery. Do you have a picture of this spot on your car? Maybe we can figure something out without cutting anything...

What I recalled in the directions for the install was to cut the tray so the bracket could be placed and the whole battery tray is shifted over for the tank to be put in place.
I'll try to get some pictures later today.

Thanks for all the info guys. I was able to fit my tank in along the fender side. I couldn’t fit it between the headlight and battery (my first choice) due to interference with the Euro-lamp height adjuster mechanism. Tell you what, I never would have believed it was possible to jam the bottle in next to the fender with a stock size battery is others hadn’t already done it!
