Default help! trying to install alky injection

hi, I have snow performance kid and trying to mount alky bottle... and i figured it would be better to use my stock windshield wiper bottle for alky like lot of ppl does.

what do I do about the tiny waterpump that is attached under the windshield wiper bottle?

how do i connect hoes to that bottle?

is there snow performance bottle can be mounted other than having to drill or taking out fender ??

I used the existing windshield washer tank for my install...all you need is a 3/4NPT-hose barb(whatever size hose you're running to the pump) & some epoxy-superglue...I used the existing rubber seal also...smeared the NPT end of the barb w/ epoxy then screwed it into the rubber seal while it was in the tank...no leaks...

I just drilled a hole in the bottle and ran a rubber hose from the top works great.

Here is what you do,

Pull tank out, drill hole to fit this fitting
http://www.fastenal.com/web/products...l.ex?sku=68323
(By the way all the fittings I list can be found at home depot in the plumbing section. They are the Watts brand connectors. They are plastic connectors. I am just using fastenal because they have pics of all of this stuff. I am going to go to all Fastenal stuff though.)

Anyway, thread fitting into the lowest part of tank where you drilled the hole.
Silicone the fitting in so there is no leaks.

Then get some of these. Get a few extra just in case.
I use them if I have to cut my tubing at all. They make great splices, and don't leak.
http://www.fastenal.com/web/products...l.ex?sku=68424

Get only 1/4 inch stuff as this is what the snow kits come with for push to connect fittings, and tubing. You can buy more tubing at home depot also. Get the 25 foot roll of 1/4 inch. It will hold the pressure fine. You need it since snow only gives you like three feet of the stuff.

Make sure you use the check valve between your tank and pump.

You can buy the $25.00 windshield wiper spray bottle and internal pump at autozone. I used it for my IC water sprayer before I got WI. I still have it mounted. I put it in the trunk, and it has more than enough pressure. It is part # 9-400. I a plain on off switch on the dash to run it.

Here is where I mounted my pump. The pump is upside down. I drilled up into the engine compartment, and used plastic wall anchors to hold it in with good screws. No problems at all. The tank is right next to it. I just pulled the fender liner out of the way to do it.



Edit: this isn't my car, I just used the pic as a representation so you would know where I mounted it. DON'T mount it in the trunk. I burned up my first pump in about 3 days. It is to much work for the pump to push all the way forward and up to the IC. Plus you lose a lot of pressure.

Mount the pump and tank somewhere in or close the the engine bay. Behind the front fenders works well.

I would tap the battery since its in the engine bay, make sure you have a fuse and relay. I'm sure it came with the kit.

I tapped the battery(+12v) for the pump(+12v) then it goes through the relay to battery ground, pump grounded also to the battery & I tapped the ACC(yellow/green wire) running into the radio for power on the relay. Any chassis ground will work. I used one behind the radio housing & one by the ecu but that was because my UTEC is switching it ON & OFF.

DO NOT TAP THE BATTERY FOR POWER TO THE RELAY.
