The coolant tank has changed from transparent to black plastic? Anyone know why?

This coolant tank is for the intercooler. The stock overflow tank is still in it's factory location.

Yeah but the coolant tank on Howies prototype was clear like the overflow tank. It kind of balanced both sides of the engine because they matched. The black looks ok as well. I just saw the one Mike Norris is putting on mine tomorrow and its black.

Yes that might have been the case on the prototype. The black tanks are what Magna Charger uses on there kits. Hope you like the kit that Mike Norris puts on your car.

My intercooler tank is black, production vs prototype, and looks great with logo. Matches the battery.

HP, did you install the sc on a stock motor. If so have you dyno'ed to see how much horse power gain you picked up. I have read most people picked up about 100 rwhp. I spoke with dan @ arrowhead and he said they picked up about 159 rwhp.

I spoke with a customer that installed one of these a few weeks ago. He saw about 134hp from the kit. The black tanks look pretty good! :)

I saw and am getting a 160 rwhp increase. 100% stock except K&N panel filter and CS Pipe on during baseline, K&N and latest Magnuson tune on during the 422 run. The intake pipe is replaced in the MagnaCharger kit.

No we didn't get to dyno the gto. We were in the way of a hurricane last week when we finished the car. The customer picked up his car to hide it from the STORM! It's supposed to come back for a shift kit this week. Maybe then we can dyno it.

I love how beautifully that thing rests between the FRCs...
Anyone know what effects this has on highway fuel economy? Just curious...
