This is the same location I put my catch can.

He made his own after buying a can off of ebay. I do not think he sells them. Not a bad idea though.

i did make a couple of these brackets, i think i have one more around here... i can make more. pm me for details...

as for the whole set up i did do the whole thing for one member, it takes me some time because i do it when i get breaks at work. or if you get the parts i can walk you through the process.

Any way someone can make a braket to make the catch can fit on the original Air Intake mounting bracket?

That will keep me from having to drill a whole in the CAI shield.

very doable i just would have to make some measurements where would you want the bottle? toward the front of the car? towards the engine? or towards the rear?

I am really interested in a bracket for the same purposes. I would want the can to point towards the front of the car. I have been wanting to install an ADM scoop, but dont want to give up my washer fluid and want a more elegant solution than what I have seen elsewhere. This is by far the best execution of the relocation that I have seen.

For me I would probably want it towards the rear because my Halltech shield uses the same spot for mounting the shield.

I bet if you made the same bracket but with a straight tab you could make it universal to go in front, side, or rear of that bracket.

Sounds like a great idea, i will take some measurements tonight and maybe can make one tomorrow. Anyone know if that bolt is metric? that may cause a problem just because i dont have the nut anymore

Ok i have been meaning to do this a while ago but got really busy, here is what you need to do to the catch can for this to work:

first the catch can:

everything besides the can can be tossed (i hold on to everything for my spare parts drawer)

the two tube ports must be removed from the bottom by unscrewing the metric screws.
(i don't have a picture of the bottom with the tube fittings on, if anyone does could you send them to me so i can add it here)

there are four holes in the bottom now, to large unthreaded holes and two small metric thread holes. these need to be plugged. i took a saw and cut the metric screws in half then slotted the top so i can use a screwdriver to thread the plugs in.

as for the large holes there are two ways to do them: when i first did this i took the grommet and the pump from the original tank and it fits very snug in one of the large holes. then made a heat shield to protect and hide the pump. Now i would recommend adding a small tube fitting to the bottom of the can and mounting the pump elsewhere (really doesn't matter as long as it is lower than the tank). to plug one or both of the holes you can tap them to 1/2-13 without drilling or drill to 29/64 and tap to 1/2-20.

the scratches in the paint are from the original tube fittings so most likely they will be on all the cans. try some touch up paint. but it is hidden pretty well...

to run the hose to the pump i purchased a 1/8" aluminum tube fitting that was anodized black. the thread on it was 10-32 to i drilled a hole with a #25 drill and tapped it to 10-32 and installed. once i new everything fit i installed all the plugs with a healthy amount of RTV black to make sure all was water tight.


Before the tank can be used you must vent the cap, otherwise it starts to pull a vacuum and wont let the water get to the pump. for my first tank i drilled a hole straight through the cap, it works but it is a little ugly. now i drill a hole from the bottom and stop before it goes all the way through then drill from the side to meet with the hole.


now we can take the bracket,

and use a longer 10-32 screw to mount in place of one of the original mounting bolts on the ADM race intake.

hope this helps, let me know if anything needs clarification or if i missed something or ...

I can check the nut size/thread tonight for you when I get home. I would just say put a hole in it big enough and reuse the existing nut.

Great write up on making the reservoir! I think I'll be buying one of these soon to do the same thing. I have no input on the pump location as I have not really dug around that side of the car, but I would say keep it close to the existing pump electrical connection so it does not have to be lengthened or anything.

ya, i had to lengthen the electrical connector for my install. if the pump was mounted in the front bumper area it wouldn't need that and the same amount of hose would be used so we wouldn't need any additional.

ya, the hole would be large enough to clear the bolt, i just don't have the nut anymore so i cant tighten it down unless i find one in the shop somewhere...

I'll get you details on the nut tonight when I get home. Is there anywhere in the front bumper area with pre-drilled holes that we could attached the pump to? Anyone have any ideas?

Here is our W/W fluid reservoir that will be available later this month. This is our first prototype. The version shown uses the stock lid taken directly from the OEM tank. We may switch to a screw-on type lid..or offer both.
This tank holds 7/8 of a gallon (14 cups) and mounts on the stud that is left exposed when using most CAI systems. It is molded to follow the lines of the car as well as the back wall of several CAI systems. It should work great with the Roto-fab, ADM and CAI inductions. It may work with others as well. It can be used with V8 or V6 cars.
We don't have the complete kit ready for market, but we were anxious to show you our progress so far!

Now that make sense! Better than a bag and looks like it came from the factory. Good Job!

Any thought on price yet?

ok well i have the digital drawing of the bracket done. after looking at the engine compartment the canister will only be able to be mounted pointing towards the front of the car or towards the motor. the battery terminal is directly behind the bracket blocking the canister.

i have to leave to go to San Antonio Texas today to see my brother graduate from Air Force basic. so monday i can get this cut and test fit it.... have a good weekend all
