Would buy in a heart beat. I wouldn't mind paying a little extra for a way to have fluid level indicators.

Will have indicator for coolant, not washer. There's just not enough room available for both. Working on the pump hanger so the pumps will be out of the engine bay

Any chance of getting a photo of fitment with FMIC piping in place?

^ Not at the moment. For the DIYer the routing would go through where the washer tank was. It should have a couple fewer bends this way too

Thanks! My only concern is that it wouldn't fit with some of the more popular FMIC kits. I had to delete my factory coolant overflow reservoir since the intercooling piping runs right through there, which is what created my interest in this product to start with.

Yeah I just realized that's where my piping would go also. Would definitely be interested in the final product.

If your routing goes near the OEM overflow it will have to be re-routed. This is something we looked at early on. While it does add some DIY, intercooler bends and couplers are pretty cheap and easy to come by. Another benefit of coming through the huge hole where the washer tank was, is that you loose at least two 90 intercooler tubing bends

This sounds like it could make my car go faster. Hmm... I shall have to reconsider this.

Or you could always roll with something like this:
http://www.jscspeed.com/catalog/Weap...TI-1835-1.html

Technically the same thing, different location, as it uses the stock window fluid location instead (Provided that location is not being used for something else). However would be a plus for FMIC kits.

Yes and the quality of those is craptastic. So much so, we started making our own version...



This is all besides the point because both of those are made for older GDs and this thread is discussing a product specific to GRs, of which no product like this (dual reservoir) exists.

Oh that would be pretty interesting... I'm down for some DIY!

I keep my meth in a pipe.

It's a good idea, Probably won't last as long as the stock plastic one though

I have everything set except the bracket to hang the pumps. Been driving the cars and they have performed flawlessly.

OK so with the bracket and plumbing the pumps I went the keep it simple stupid method... after making a couple really nice, but not so cheap brackets. It gets tricky because the pumps need to be kept down low (or the pumps don't prime), keep anything from rubbing, and there is nothing nearby or down low to bolt to. So, a super simple cheap hanger is used. It's actually a little embarrassing the amount of design time I've got into different brackets and such, working my way around to this simple bar with a couple holes in it

So the pumps get plumbed using supplied fittings and hose. Super rugged and very well fitting!



The embarrassingly simple 'hanger' keeps things from rubbing and all the pump to car stuff is retained.

That thing leaks between the chambers. Ask me how I know.

^ You're not the first one to mention that either. This is one product, in the years we've been making them, we've never had a internal leak, cap pop off expectantly, etc. Like the older style, this new one will be made by fully welding the first reservoir and pressure testing before welding the second tank on. There should NEVER be cross contamination
