Yes, the latest Mustang has its fans and its detractors when it comes to the car’s styling. Even those that love the S550 seem to have one issue with the car. That issue is under the hood, and it has nothing to do with the controversial Active Sound Generator on the EcoBoost car. No, that objectionable item is the humble coolant overflow tank.
Sure, some might debate the looks of the new engine cover. However, you’ll be hard-pressed to find someone who loves the looks of that coolant overflow tank.
Fortunately, we have the aftermarket to fix these little issues, which is part of the fun anyway.
To the rescue with a replacement coolant overflow tank is Modular Motorsports Racing. Its anodized black aluminum tank (PN 633250; $199.99) is designed as a five-minute bolt-on. The MMR tank accepts all the stock hoses and is designed to clear stock and aftermarket air intake systems.
