Dont pick up a mishimoto or a CXracing. The neck is so high the coolant can't even drain from the overflow to the neck..

I have a Mishimoto and i agree with frozenbarb about the radiator cap. I added a fiber was her to the cap and the problem is gone. I have use mishimoto before for another car and stand behind the product, however the neck lacks design. other than that it fits very nicely. i can submit a pic about how i modified the cap without voiding the warranty. Also another member told me if you use the Nismo cap it also gets rid of the problem....

- The stock fans also fit well. its a tight fit but once the rad is in it fits and looks very nice. The slim fans from mishimoto make for a much cleaner look but for my purposes the stock fans are great. Runs nice and cool.

+1. My Mishi still (after being replaced under warranty) doesn't pull fluid back from the overflow, and I'm running the Nismo cap.

I placed a fiber washer in-betwee the lower seal on the radiator cap. This has now fixed the problem :D i can send a picture if you want. The reservoir tank now flows properly.

I can give you measurements for the fiber washer and how to put it on the cap if you all want.
