What it does:
The stock radiator overflow pipe aims directly at the engine pulley system. When antifreeze shoots out of the pipe it ends up hitting the pulley and engine block. This modification runs the overflow pipe down below the radiator.

Here it is with a radiator hose attached with a clamp around the hose and one around the bottle:
A view from the other side:
