Question I want a driver's-side under-hood meth tank! - 02-14-2017, 06:16 PM

Now that the big oem airbox is gone, it just makes so much sense, to me at least, to mount a water/meth (mix) tank between the PS reservoir and the headlight/WW reservoir...right over the wheel well liner.

1) anyone know of an OEM WINDSHIELD WASHER tank that fits? How about a 2007-2011 Bmw 3-Series Tank, p/n 61677157146, maybe?

2) anyone think this is a bad idea?? My only concern is fire, but...since the blue stuff we use for our windshield is basically boost juice...if I'm not worried about it, then why worry about the water/meth mix?

3) do I need to mount the pump a certain way (height wise) compared to the tank and nozzles? Thought I read somewhere that tank highest, then pump, then nozzles. Ala Gravity prime??

Tell me your thoughts!!

Thanks,
// Radar //

There's no reason not to do it. I've seen kits (Snow performance) for other makes of vehicles that have under hood mounts. If you have the space then it's probably the ideal location; shorter wiring, lines, etc. Quicker purging as well. I may attempt to do the same thing when I get my kit, as long as I can find the room to do a clean install.

Thanks for the reply. Sanity check complete! Lol

Yeah, I've got this gigantic area behind the DS headlight that would be perfect.
Need to make a trip to my local junk yard for some ideas.
