Default Need help designing PS reservoir

this coming fall I plan to redo few things in the engine bay, one of which is relocating my PS tank from the stock location to where the AC compressor used to sit, run MSI PS pump fitting to convert to -AN lines

Here is my current setup



I can't run stock tank mainly because the outlet/inlet is not pointing where I want, so my plan is to fab a tank out of aluminium

I have chasebays tank that I tried and took off, as I wasn't impressed by the lack of baffles and constant leakint under the cap




My questions are:

1. how should the baffles be designed
2. what cap do I use, as it is my understanding it has to be vented
3. how high should the return fitting be in respect to the cap/pump fitting

When I custom built mine, I cut the stock one apart and based my design off of the factory unit. For a cap I used a billet one from ebay (can be bought anywhere, and drilled a small hole vertically then sideways to vent it. Kind of hard to explain.

I saw this thread and subscribed, I haven't used mine on new build yet, but I dont know if my 6" Tall 2.5" OD Aluminum intercooler pipe is going to cut it after researching. HEre is how it was mounted. I really like the mounting, might just modify this one to pull the fluid from a new section welded on, that way I dont have to completely scrap it. Sorry for blurry cell phone pictures. Its the thing mounted to manifold, you can see the return line on the backside view.
