Header / Expansion Tank Overflow Hose

Recommended Posts

Is there a reason for the overflow pipe from header to expansion tank to be routed all the way around the engine bay?

I need to replace mine and was thinking of just taking the shortest route from tank to tank. (using less pipe and a more direct route).

Would this be ok or have I overlooked something obvious? :o

I agree, the only reason I can see is that it is one thing less to bother with when removing the boot floor, but compared to the wiring it's a non starter. So yes I think technically its OK, but not too close to the turbo or it will melt the rubber. Personally, if it's just a question of hose, I'd stick with the original, the clips are there, so for the cost of another metre?
