Finally had a chance to start installing the water tank.
Changed out the lid to black because I did not really care for the white. Had to re-drill and tap the holes for the screws. I think it looks alot better.
There was others ways I could have done this install, but didn't think of it until after I was finished. Came out nice!
All that's left is to finish installing the pump, wiring and route the hoses to the intercooler.
Still going to be a little bit longer till this system is completely finished. I'll post more as it comes. From what Ive been told, manifolds should be done next week, then has to go to the machine shop, then they will start doing the piping for the cold side.
Here's some pics of the tank install
Just made a simple template out of some paper to mark where to cut the holes.
Like my tape job?? Ran out of tape as you can see...
Traced the inside of the holes with some white-out for easy cleanup.
I cut on each side so you could fold the carpet inside. This way if were to ever remove the tank one day so your not left with a hole.
I punched a hole in the center to use as a guide and used a 1 1/2" hole saw to cut the opening.
All cleaned up!
The aft bolt uses a carriage bolt with a washer in the original spare tire mount.
Put the bolt in first the place the tank in and put the nut and washer on.
This will put the tank into position to mark the 2 front holes. More to follow...
