I want to caution anyone considering this mod. You MUST USE EPDM (ethylene propylene diene Monomer (M-class) rubber) which a synthetic type of rubber for the cap and hose. It is the same material your brake lines are made of. DO NOT use ordinary gas/oil hose you find at your local parts store. Brake fluid will eat ordinary gas/oil hose. EPDM caps and hose is far more expensive than ordinary gas/oil hose. The hose and caps I use in my kit are EPDM and will last as long as any brake hose in your car.

Thanks Ed! I can't stress the importance of this enough either! This is VERY important, no one wants brake fluid running out all over the car or worse, loosing the braking ability because they used the cheaper rubber plugs and hoses! This is not a project to short cut and save money......

I cannot locate any epdm hose or caps at any auto parts stores here in Arkansas. I've even tried tractor supply company. I usually get a blank stare in return when I ask if they sell epdm.

The only hose I found that says it's made of EPDM rubber is a prestone radiator overflow hose, I called prestone and the guy said I shouldn't use it for brake fluid....maybe he thought I was using it under higher pressure? What do you guys think, can I use this hose? If not, I will need to order from somewhere online.

Are there varying types or grades of epdm, or can I use this radiator overflow hose?

I have all the parts to do this, what kind of drill is used to put the holes in the positive battery post? Mines obviously too big...

I think some of the guys used a 90 degree drill, not real common, I know. I am going out to my car to sort that issue out myself.....Maybe I will try my dremel tool.

Reservoir completed!

Hi Guys, as promised I have a few pics of my install, which is pretty straight forward and mounted in pretty much the same way as some others here, on the battery post. First though, many thanks to flht99b and 2SSRS for the parts! I used a masking tape template traced from back of reservoir and located the holes to my liking. I opted to start the holes with an 1/8" dremel drill bit. Then I removed the CAI Inc intake and used a reg sized battery drill motor with a 1/4" bit from the front side of the battery post bracket, using the pilot holes for a guide. Everything is pretty much self explanatory from here so just take your time and make sure you have all of your paint protected from the brake fluid! Here's a few pics of my install -

I guess I could have added a pic with brake fluid! No worries, the reservoirs were full with nice clean DOT 4! Even though the pics don't look like it, must be the flash from the camera. Thanks!

I have the reservoir, and I finally ordered my install kit from Ed. I cannot believe how hard it is to find EPDM at auto parts stores! Can't wait to get me reservoir all set up :-)

Yes, the Dremel tool with a drill bit made a nice starter hole and then I pulled the air intake box to gain access from the front side with a cordless drill for the 1/4" hole.

Received my epdm materials from 2SSRS. He accomadted my needs and also shipped quickly as he said he would. Thanks 2SSRS.

Now when I get some free time, I need to finish fabricating my bracket and get this reservoir mounted
