Where to get the Roto-Fab reservoir for heat exchanger?

I've seen some posts from ZL1 owners how they have added the Roto-Fab reservoir to add more capacity to the coolant in the LSA's heat exchanger.

I googled it but all I could find was the windshield washer reservoir which I don't think is the same thing.

anyone?

You can also buy the reservoir from RotoFab, but you'd have to source the rest of the parts including the hoses from a parts store. I was going to buy it from them, but there wasn't much savings after I added up everything.

We sell the full line of Roto-Fab products. We also fabricate our own ice tank/reservoir in house that has a 3 gallon capacity. we consistently see gains of 40 rwhp with our tank filled with ice. This is the same ice tank we use on all our FlameThrower package Zl1's.

Isnt this the same reservoir as in the W/W relocation kit?
At least its in the same location. I think he asked for the new reservoir which is to be mounted somewhere else and still in development.

Im waiting for a complete kit which enables w/w relocation AND bigger cooler reservoir together also.

The LPE site shows it as the right kit for the ZL1 which I can assume can withstand the high coolant temps of the heat exchanger fluid.

This is the only intercooler reservoir by Rotofab right now, which I think is what the op is asking about.

I think the ww reservoir is different as it doesn't have the male spigot on top to receive the coolant.. Same location different reservoirs. Different price also. Rotofab??

I already have their CAI system so I will order the tank like yours. Quick question. Can u give me some info on how you rerouted the heat exchanger hoses? I like the clean look of how your's doesn't have the two hoses up front any more.

Also, can I assume that's an oil catch can on the left front of the engine? If so, can u give me any links? I like that look.

I would wait for roto-fab to complete their new coolant bottle. They are making some changes to their design and making the kit more complete. If I had to guess late summer early fall before they will have it out. I plan on waiting and making it one of my winter projects.

Where is the relocated roto-fab W/W tank?
When i compare your photo to the one from the roto-fab shop for the W/W tank, it looks to me as it goes in the same place.

I'm really curious.

If i understand your question correctly, Op asked if the LPE reservoir would fit when you have a Rotofab CAI because on the Lingenfelter website it specifically says the intercooler reservoir will only fit when you upgrade to a Lingenfelter CAI.. I was just making the op aware that I had both Rotofab CAI and the LPE/Rotofab reservoir installed on my car and it fits. I never relocated the ww tank, it's in the stock location.
