Wiper Reservoir Relocation

With more and more intakes being developed and available for camaros we have a huge number of options. Some of the intakes require that the windshield wiper reservoir be removed, such as my ADM Race Intake, and I believe the fastlane intake and I saw one more the other day that came with a cheap tank for a replacement. Since my car is a daily driver i wanted to have a smaller reservoir just in case i really needed to wash my windshield so this is what i did...

i used a cheap catch can turned it upside down and attached the pump to the bottom, made a bracket that mounted off the air box, extended the plug and voila! a nice looking relocated wiper reservoir.

Very good job looks stock. Looks like it has a level indicator on the 3rd pic, smart. Maybe the adm race cai is for me in the future.

Ya the tubbe on the side is a level indicator making it much easier than looking inside the cap to try and see how much fluid is left.

I was looking at the ADM Street Intake because it kept the wiper bottle but then Andy made a group buy discount that made them the same price, and the ADM Race Intake comes with the scoop at the bottom so i had to buy it...

...and in a pinch just plug into your Coleman propane stove for some eggs and sausage.



Sorry reminded me of those propane bottles. Looks good and ingenious.

Catch Can on Ebay

it comes with brackets and some connectors but i made my own to look a little nicer and match what i was looking for...

but when you remove the wiper reservoir the pump and its rubber grommet pull right out and press into the bottom of the new catch can.
