Trouble with front mount

Hi all,
I'm busy putting in a front mount intercooler on my 2002 bug eye wrx.
I had to remove my overflow radiator bottle to get the piping to fit, now my problem is what to do with the bottle? Can the piping be blocked off or does it need to be there?
Any idea's on where to relocate it to?
Thanx for any advise

Re: Trouble with front mount

cant you just lengthen the pipe and drop it neatly under the car as its the overflow and not part of the system howevever you migt lose coolant when temps are up or relocate the bottle theres quite a bit of room on the inner wings with the splash sheils removed
