        If it doesn't come with brackets, where can you get them? How are others mounting them? I have a saleen sc too and I don't see why thing wouldn't work with a modification to the existing hosing.

        • The Canton Aluminum Expansion Tank for Vortech and Paxton Superchargers will utilize the existing brackets from the super charger kit's expansion tank. If you are not running one of these superchargers, custom brackets would be required.

        how full should this tank commonly be? Thanks John

        • Coolant levels in the Canton Aluminum Expansion Tank should be below the upper hose on the tank by approximately 3/4"

        brackets? Does this expansion tank come with mounting brackets?

        • No, the Canton Aluminum Expansion Tank for Vortech/Paxton Superchargers (05-09 GT) does not come with mounting brackets.

        Helpful (0)

        Will this work on my 2005 saleen? And how many ounces does it hold?

        • The Canton Aluminum Expansion Tank for Vortech/Paxton Superchargers (05-09 GT) is a universal tank for Vortech/Paxton supercharger setups. It can be used for other superchargers as well but this will not be a direct bolt on. You will have to make changes and modify your engine bay to make this Expansion Tank work correctly.

            EASY INSTALL

            I am by no means a mechanic, and I have basic tools. This was an easy install completed in approximately an hour. Would have been quicker with the proper tools and smaller hands.

            Just get it. No leaks and looks awesome.

            Fits perfect. Use the vortech brackets. Takes 5 min to install and look great. No more leaks.

            Paxton’s flimsy plastic tanks sucks

            I consider this a mandatory upgrade for the Vortech/Paxton kits. Don’t let the cheap plastic tank strand you on the side of the road

            Needed

            Looks great, better than the one that comes with the paxton kit, have had problems with the cap leaking after checking fluids it loosens up after getting hot the first warm up other than that fits perfect

            Good bye blown out plastic tank.

            I'm not in it for looks but more so for performance and this tank is the real deal. Maybe if my TIG skills were awesome I would fab my own; but for the price it bolts right in without issue and looks like it belongs with the 600 rwhp machine!

            canton tank

            needed this to replace the stock plastic one from vortech. i had heard bad reports of the plastic unit leaking after time and i drive my car around 10,000 miles a year and didn't want to take any chance of being on a trip and getting a coolant leak

            Great can for the cash

            I had mounted a Paxton supercharger on my 5.0. After a few pulls during tuning I noticed a coolant leak. Tracked the leak down which was coming from the new plastic coolant can that came from the kit. It had a pin size hole in the bottom. I called Team Beefcake and he recommended this beautiful can from American Muscle. Looks great!! As always lightning fast shipping. Thanks AM.

            I installed this tank in my 2011 gt and the fit was perfect. Not a blemish on the tank. As usual, I got it in about 2 days! Great price also!

            Aluminum coolant tank for Paxton/vortech blowers.

            Fit and finish is perfect. Much nicer then the factory vortech tank that comes with the kit. Finish us really nice and durable as we'll, very happy! Thanks American muscle!

            BETTER THAN STOCK

            The original piece was made of cheap plastic that worked for 2 years and started leaking coolant. It took two of us to locate where the coolant leak was coming from ($$$$).. When confronted with purchasing a new one from Vortech or this unit, there was NO GUARANTEE from Vortech the issue wouldn't arise again. I am glad that I went with this product!! Not only does it look better... I am confident that it will not need replacing.

            Used on a 2011 Vortech 5.0

            I replaced the plastic tank that came with my Vortech with this one. It is a HUGE improvement over the Vortech unit. It looks fantastic and much more durable. Even though the piece isn't advertised for a 2011+ Vortech it is a direct fit.

            When I installed my Vortech, I was really unhappy with the stock black plastic expansion tank that comes with the kit. This is a major appearance upgrade and I'm very happy with it.
