Just getting home and unwrapping all the goodies, I didn't see any instructions with the heat exchanger or tank? Am I missing them?

You get nothing and like it...LOL! I remember the directions being in the box on Smitty's car. It was so simple. Hose from the top of the pump to the bottom of the reservoir. Then use their special connection to the top fitting making sure to WD40 the hose to help with the slide fit. Look at some pics here to aid. Call D3 and get them to email you some directions too!

I finally stopped by and picked up a reservoir yesterday. Great bunch of guys and some unbelievable stuff they are working on. They will probably be back on as sponsors once they have more Camaro products.

Until then Apex Chase is selling these.

I wish it was a little larger capacity. I don't want to replace my heat exhanger since I live in AZ and need all the airflow I can get to my AC condenser and radiator.

Does adding the reservoir provide any noticable improvment for lowering IAT2 temps?

You are adding capacity, so it will help on a longer pull as it will take longer for the blower coolant to get hot. It will also have a faster recovery time. How much is hard to say unless somebody here has data logged it before and after.

You might want to look into the Ron Davis built unit then. I got mine from ADM.
We've had a few 100 degree days here in the last few weeks and my coolant temps sit at 181-183 in traffic with the a/c on. With the a/c off, again 181-183 on the highway without a problem. Temp just sits right there with the 160 degree thermostat.

Thanks. Looks like they are local to me also. I found a place online that has the D3 reservoir listed for $129. I sent my Paypal payment last night. Let's see if they honor that price. If they do I will post who it was. Don't want to let the cat out of the bag until I get a tracking number.

My order still shows processing and they have corrected the price discrepancy. I'll call them tomorrow to see if they are going to honor it.

Pretty much. If they honor it, great. If not, I'm not going to be a dick about it.
