[V8] expansion tank

Yup, most any Foreign auto parts supplier will be able to get the expansion
tank in the ~50 range, including Scott Mockry.  I have seen the regular
(200/5k) expansion tank used as well -- just requires that the upper small
diameter bleeder/return hose be a foot or two longer.  So I'd remove that
one and take it to your local flaps to match.


Btw -- For those of you who also have Urqs, you can also use the 200/5k
expansion tank in place of the 4kq/urq one -- just requires some dremeling
of a few plastic tabs and drilling of a hole on one of those flat surfaces
(of the expansion tank) to make for a perfect fit.
