Washer Reservoir for ADM Race Scoop
 
11 Attachment(s)
Here is the solution I came up with. This is a 2 quart tank with a remote fill and 6 feet of tubing. The kit comes with a 12V pump which I did not use.

The stock pump fits nicely into the new tank.

Attachment 202283

It is necessary to cut off the post on the stock pump in order for it to fit the new tank.

Here is the new tank with the stock pump attached to the ADM Race Scoop.

The new assembly installed.

I routed the fill hose in the gap near the radiator.

I mounted the remote fill to the bracket for the stock air box. When it gets warmer out and I have more time, I am going to mount it to the side of the air box.

I had the manufacturer put an unvented cap on the reservoir and a vented cap on the remote fill. When I went to fill it it was filling ok initially but then stopped. I realized that it was vapor lock preventing me from filling the tank. :facepalm:
I switched the caps and then it filled normally.

What's nice about this solution is that it uses the stock wiring and plumbing. Also, you don't have to look at a large tank when you open the hood.

Very nice, clean install. :thumbup:

Awesome... best I've seen yet... Now the BIG question... how do I get one?

caverman 01-29-2011 05:42 PM

:thumbsup: WOW.....really nice! I like that setup.

caverman 01-29-2011 05:45 PM

Ok....give up more details on that tank and where you got it.

I am trying to get one of the forum vendors to offer it up for sale. I am not sure what the retail mark up will be so I will not post any prices. I will leave that up to whoever sells it. Stay tuned.

Why run it through a vendor?:iono: It will likely raise the total price and not provide anything in return. Not try to be a dic...just curious.

Edit: I think I get it. "They" can customize that tank to allow the stock pump to sit in there without cutting. Nice find. Hurry up though.lol

The only thing I would do is use a better quality fill hose,like marine reinforced polybraid.Looks great.

That's not a bad idea. I got the hose from the tank manufacturer. That would probably a good mod for the end user.
