Who wants to be a guinea pig?

A new company has sent me a coolant reservoir for 97-2005 Boxsters that they need tested before they manufacture a million of them. The reservoir looks good and I would install it on my Boxster but my wiring harness is currently out of the car. The deal is I have to install it which I'll do for a bargain price of $300 including coolant. They want it installed ASAP so if yours is looking dingy don't miss this opportunity.

If you'll include a new thermostat I'll do it. I can drive down on car care day (tomorrow?).

Ron, you can have my thermostat if you want it.
I took it out at ~ 40k miles to install a LN engineering lo-temp one
My house is pretty much on the way from you to Flintworks

Car Care Day was last Saturday. I'll include the labor for the thermostat but not the part.

This is a great deal! Someone should act on it. Having replaced my coolant reservoir on my own, it can tell you it is very labor intensive and giant pain in the @$$/knuckles.
