They say that good things come to those who wait, and we’d certainly say that’s the case with the Mishimoto 2016+ Camaro expansion tank. Note that I did not specify “SS” here. This tank also fits on the 2.0T, but we haven’t gotten a change to test it out on a V6 model yet, though it should fit. If any V6 owners are local to the Philadelphia area and want to come on by for a test fit so that we can be 100% sure, please reach out!

Eliminating the Eyesore. Mishimoto 2016 Camaro Expansion Tank R&D, Part 1: Stock Tank and Initial Design

While we were deep in development of various new components for the 2016 Camaro, we received numerous requests for a replacement for the coolant expansion tank.
