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?

The fact that it isnt available yet could be a reason its so hard to find.

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.

I wonder if that works with the Roto-Fab intake?

Yes. I've got both.

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 just finished installing LPE reservoir & it is so easy :thumbsup:

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. :)
