My 1922 antique model T racer has an open system, no pressure cap and if it gets hot it spits out coolant. A pressuer system increades the cooling efficiency.

You have to have a Recirculating/Overflow Catch Can ...(Not just a catch can)..

crownver Instead of puking coolant out the hose onto the ground in an open system, on a closed system it drains into the reservoir, and then gets sucked back into the rad on cooling.

Cooling System-Open System vs Closed System
