Getting back to the original question...

I removed my overflow bottle quite a while ago. Try it (trust me) for a few days and you will see that your coolant never really goes low or overflows after the initial drive. You will stay about 1" below the top of your rad at all times. My car has been like this for about 2 years now and have never had a single problem. My overflow hose (from the rad cap) goes straight down towards the ground.

I did a mild wire tuck and got rid of the egr, canister, and relocated the overflow. I think it looks pretty good, but needs some paintwork eventually.
Here is a thread with a few pictures.

That looks great Graf. Get an aluminum radiator in there and you will have a serious stunner.

I agree. I love the look, but don't know if I'll ever actually take the time to do it.

you know if you're in to weight savings, and from the look of your engine bay I think you are? two bolts and that bracket for the stock airbox will come out. don't think you'll be using it anytime soon. as well as the one with the bolt sticking straight up.
