Looks familiar? At $158 shipped, you know what's going down. (waits patiently for UPS)

That was exactly why I added the F before AMS. It's a Chinese replica I found accidentally while browsing the interweb. Just supposed to house coolant over flow. Nothing more than that. I believe it will be a good $158 spent. Will be a great replacement for the hideous plastic oem tank without breaking the bank.

For those wondering the authentic AMS tank retails for $490 before shipping.

Looks like a nice alternative to the usual plasti dipped or spray painted OEM coolant reservour! 

 

Let us know how it fits

I'm not sure why when adding a new tank everyone uses these large ugly replacements in the first place.

My question, is which came first.. the chicken or the egg? Is this an AMS replica, or did AMS private label this from the start? Not that it matters, just curious.

what does it matter to you? You guys sell junk that you get copied from everyone else. And your boss is a tard.

In any case it's a replica of stock.
