nah, loads of cars use bottom fed expansion bottles..... just keep your coolant clean and flush the bottle out every now and again.

I was wondering recently about this same thing. Saw some cool looking catch cans and thought something similar would be nice instead of the standard bottle. Not too fussed about it though.

Just gave a few parts the same treatment :D Came out really nice. Shame it doesn't wash surface rust away from the outside of the blue box :(
