    Coolant Expansion Tank:


    I used this on my first M54 swap car. It is a pure track car with no IHKA, so no heater hoses. It works OK, but has to be twisted awkwardly in places to avoid abrasion on the alternator and the frame rail pinch weld.
    This is a E46 part. **Water pipe to lower expansion tank**
    PN 11531436410






    I'm planning on using it again for my current build with IHKA, and also using Jordan's specified hose PN 64216951946 to connect from a T or Y to the lower heater core connector.



    I am still searching for an affordable source for the T or Y, and the upper heater core connector to the engine.

      This is the OEM BMW fuel line, which avoids POS dorman stuff.

      It's $16 from summit and that's a package of TWO.

      Dorman is hardly a POS manufacturer.

      The quick connect fitting is *NOT* a hose barb. Clamping a rubber hose onto it may "work", but you run the risk of damaging the inner lining of the hose because, well, it's not a hose barb.
