It cant just be above the radiator, it has to ideally be above the highest point in the engine it goes to as well. Adding an expansion tank should solve your problem though.

Yep that sounds okay then.

Its interesting.....cams car doesnt have an expansion tank and its fine.
Have you got a heater connected up that might be trapping air?

Didn't realise it had been so long since I updated this! No, not finished yet... Been spending too much money flying planes.. Currently sitting in the garage with the engine off being machined, all the front suspension is built, brakes are built, currently deciding whether to go with a bit more of a classic gauge setup as I think the full race dash setup doesn't look particularly clean.. I replaced the left hand a panel which was stuffed, changed the inlet manifold from quad throttles to a Hyundai single throttle plenum setup (easier to tune and I will turbo down the track) anyway here's a bunch of pictures, got a lot of stuff I need to re paint like the cam cover, I welded some an fittings into it for the oil catch can.

I'm going to try my best to get this thing driving by the end of the year.. Sick of not having a mini to drive
