Default Finally got my 12L tank installed (pic)

Just thought you all would enjoy a pic of the bracket I made up to fit my SMC kit onto my 12L spec c tank from today's car show... (I can make more brackets if anyone wants one!). I just installed the tank so far, but I think it looks good! The rest of the kit will be standard SMC fair with the control unit mounted in my ashtray and the main power switch for the system mounted in the 12v power outlet (all of which can be covered with the flip down thingy)...

I got my tank from xxxtuning.com They were the best pricing I could find on the spec c 12L tank. Dont pay over $200 for the tank itself. The guys at SMC will install the fittings in the tank for free if you buy a kit from them and send them the tank. The regular price of the kit is like 499, but if you send them a tank they knock off 50 (i think, dont quote me on that)...

As for the kit, it is a progressive controller. I dont have the entire kit installed yet (girlfriend is in town, not allowed to play much with the subaru ).

Sharp looking setup. Hard liquor monkey

12L Tank may also be found here for a very reasonable price:

how the heck do you refill the thing? It looks like the refill cap is blocked by the rear shelf.
Also reading the specs on the tank it says it includes the low level sensor. Do the USDM sedans have a dash light for low fluid level? Is there a connection in the trunk to hook this sensor up?

USDM STi's do, WRX's do not. If you have an STi, that connection is currently on your water tank in the trunk. You would have to move it over. The SMC controller has a light on it that shows low level though.

To refill it, well, that is an issue. So far I have worked out a funnel and a hose, and that seems to work pretty well. It is not the best, but show me where else to put 12L of fluid and not take up any real trunk space...

I just rigged up the same kindof deal.... got a funnel and taped a long hose on it. Seems to be the best bet.

If you go into Spencers, you can pickup a beer bong which is the same thing.

Did you finish this install yet? How does the system perform with the pump mounted on the tank and roughly 6ft of line to pressurize before the spray hits the nozzle?

Is mounting the pump in the rear on the tank a better approach then say in the engine compartment with a shorter distance to the nozzle?

I too have an SMC kit and would like to upgrade to the 12l tank but have concerns about the distance and best location for the pump...

6 ft? Do you have the ultra-compact model. It took about 15 feet to go from my trunk to the TMIC.

I think the best way to do it (read: the way I did it) is to mount the Pump in the front (I put mine under the battery, just in front of the front driver side wheel) and use the little pump that comes in the 12 L tank to help push the water up to the main pump. I don't have the SMC kit so I don't know what would be required as far as wiring the two pumps but I don't think it would be too complicated.

Has anyone ever tried installing this in a wagon?

I recently got one of these tanks and I am trying to come up with a clever way to mount it...

Does anyone know if I am right in assuming that the tank can not be installed flat? Because I guess the pump doesn't function as designed then...

maybe there is some sort of quick connect that I can use so that I can take out the tank when I need to use the wagon's room in the back...

any thoughts on this?

the tank will physically fit--you'll need to modify the mounting brackets to secure in to the body.

japanparts.com has the tank for less. I was thinking of fabing a tank in the spare tire well.
