The swirl pot removes air from the coolant before it goes to the radiator, and goes in the triangular area just behind the radiator exhaust splitter panels. Making the egg-shaped cutouts for the tangential inlet and outlet pipes was easy by first modeling it in CAD and printing it out 1:1 – a surprisingly hard thing to do in Sketchup. Also made a tube beader – it needs work but does the job.
