58. Now for the inter-cooler setup. Web included a pretty nice coolant reservoir in the kit, but it really wouldn’t work while maintaining the frunk plastics. Since I’m trying to maintain a somewhat stock look, I had to come up with something else. So I got with Corky and worked on building a custom aluminum a coolant tank to fit at the top of the spare tire tub. I made a cardboard mock-up, and some drawings to send to him. He welded up a prototype which went through several revisions. Eventually I got exactly what I was looking for. I sent the bare tank off to Greenstreak at JNZ to have it powder-coated wrinkle black, just like my valve cover. Here’s a couple photos of the tank before it was installed.

And the back of the tank:

59. Here’s how the tank is mounted to the plastic tub and how the coolant enters and exits the tank. I cut a 2″ wide piece of aluminum stock to provide added support for the two bolts that hold the tank. It’s very secure and everything is hidden.

60. This is the tank installed. Very discreet, and the tire bin lid fits over it perfectly. Plus this tank holds more coolant than the standard aftermarket reservoir.
