Just looking to get thoughts on the aftermarket aluminum degas bottles for the 6.0..I saw some on eBay for around $135.00.. ASI was one of manufacturers. I'm not paying the price for a sinister diesel one. Or just buy another oem. Just wanting some legit opinions. Mines all hard to read. Thanks.

I know mishimoto makes one for around the $260 mark I do believe? That’d be a good in between from the crazy priced $400 sinister one lol. And still good trusted quality.

I don’t think I’d trust so eBay one, would probably just go OEM at that point. Although the style points in the engine bay are cool.

apparently, some of the ebay ones may have an oddball thread at the sensor ports so I would buy one only is shipped and sold by Amazon so returns are easy

I have a prototype aluminum unit from Accurate ( same as seen on ebay without the Lever cap) that has a lever style old school cap and i run an overflow container

I will never buy an OEM style again

I'm in the same place since my "seeping" head gaskets have puffed my stock bottle up like a real expensive balloon.
I like the looks of the Mishimoto tank but I'm not overly fond of the sight tube for fluid levels
The PSP/Moroso tank is a thing of beauty but it's creeping up on $400
So, it looks like for a little more than one of the Ebay units with suspect country of origins the Accurate Diesel tank is where I'm heading

the Accurate tank is the same as the cheap china tanks . as soon as I bought mine fromm accurate for close to 400 bucks i saw them on ebay and I was pissed
I asked Tim at accurate and He said they were also disappointed ( whatever that means I just knew I was dupped )

I think maybe the china MFG did what China MFG's do and sell the product you pain them to make direct

But at least the Accurate tank has a real 1/8NPT port on it and not an SAE nut welded on the underside where it can leak

I ended up going with the Mishimoto, still not a fan of the sight tube but it sure makes it easy to check levels
