Intercooler Coolant Reservoir Question

Hey guys!! I know I've heard tons of great things about the Prospeed/D3 reservoir which is like 350 bucks. I've seen a lot of folks that had another one made by Rota Fab/Lingenfelter. Is that product no longer available? I thought I heard its good and a lot cheaper but having trouble finding it. I saw one on RotaFab site for 119.95 that sits behind the intake and by the brake fluid res but that doesn't seem correct and I believe it's for windshield washer. (hence ww on the product) Any help as always is much appreciated.

Right now I'm looking at a few options from "Boost District". May be able to adapt one of theirs with a fabricated bracket.

RotoFab was at CamaroCon last weekend. I spoke with them about that tank. It has been discontinued. It was kinda rushed into production and they had lots of issues with the threads on the tank side. The cap didn't fit perfectly and the tank threads striped easily. This resulted in lots of leaking tanks. I had 2. Now using lots of teflon tape to control the leaking. It should have been designed with a press in metal thread system similar to other products they currently have.

You were (are) looking into a cheaper solution than a $350 D3 reservoir. An ice tank is not your solution if you're looking for cheap.
