Actually I think it may be fine. I put the stock radiator cap back on and made about 6 2-4 gear pulls really close together and I see no spray at all. I had the go pro in there too that i'm going to watch in a few but i don't foresee it showing anything because it was dry in the engine bay. I even made a full 3rd gear pull then stopped as fast as possible to check to overflow level and it was still at normal levels. The vent tube was completely dry as well so it wasn't pushing out there.

The cap I put on there was from Orileys. It kinda seemed to twist on too easy so I doubted the seal from the beginning. The stock one takes a little force to go to the second "click" and this one didn't. Ill keep monitoring it but I think all might be well. Fingers crossed!

Well I did, but I guess at just the wrong times maybe??? Either way, I took it out the other day and beat the **** out of it and it didn't even try to spray coolant like my original post said. With the old "overflow tank" and new cap it would be everywhere. Who knows. I'll try it again sometime this week.
