A common issue that affects a cars coolant temps is air. Air is far less effcient at cooling than coolant. Air can also become trapped and create heat pockets throughout a coolant system.
The GKTECH coolant breather tanks are designed to be a more efficient way to fill and maintain the cooling system, and ensure any air in your system can escape.
By connecting common points throughout the coolant system the breather tank allows your system to vent so no air bubbles will get trapped in the system causing coolant to not flow optimally and cause your car to overheat. One of the most crucial aspects to maintaining your engine and your car's general performance, is ensuring your engine can run cool, and the cooling system can operate as intended.
Typically, you would have to piece this kit together yourself. We needed a solution for the various SR (RWD) powered vehicles that we own ourselves so we make this kit which includes literally every single piece that you'll need:
- Swirl pot
- Blank radiator cap
- Vehicle specific bracket
- Lower radiator hose junction
- Upper coolant system SR20 (RWD) specific barb

I’ve always had weird air pocket issues with my KA24DE-T. I’ve always attributed it to the upper coolant hose having to be routed under the cold side charge piping. Every time I go to a drift event, I would burp the coolant system and there would be bubbles, I’ve ruled out a bad head gasket. I can confirm that this kit works perfectly with my KA! I installed it, bleed the system, and immediately noticed my car warm up to operating temperature a lot faster than before. I also bleed the system way faster than normal. If you’re running a KA, even KAT, I’d highly recommend this for peace of mind.
