Just ordered the metal version even though I swapped my plastic one about 15k ago. My past mods have pretty much just been replacing plastic parts with metal on this car lol
Link to the metal one?

My factory coolant adapter finally gave up this past week. I went through half a the coolant bottle in about 20 miles.

My car has around 60K, almost 5 years old.

Luckily, i'm on extended warranty and had the dealer replace for free.

I'm definitely interested in looking into the EMD billet adapter in the near future to prevent this from happening again.

To those who have done this or witnessed it being done: Do you lose coolant when replacing the coolant adapter? It ties into the coolant line that goes back to the coolant expansion tank.
