It really depends honestly. In the winter it builds up more water **** from condensation in the engine, so it would completely fill for me once a month. During the summer it will usually get filled 1/4 of the way at by every oil change. Its mostly a combination of water/oil for me.



what I usually find.

Drives: 08 GSR/ 15' midnight silverado / gsxr 1000 on spray!!

i had to add some fluid the next morning when the car was fully cooled off.

overall install was 1/10 difficulty, the bottom bolt that holds the expansion tank in place is a pain in the ***, i had to use a long 14mm.

- just dump the coolant it into a plastic bottle & take it to a shop that disposes of car fluids. you can pick up extra vacuum plugs at auto zone for 2$ as well. and if you want to get an actual pipe plug just go to home depot and get a 1/4" plug for your intake so you don't have to worry about a little silicone bung with a zip tie/ clamp fitting on it

What size thread is the fitting for the replacement of the pcv valve? I know one side can be 8 or 10an but the other side? The side that gets threaded into the valve cover.

Thanks in advance
