Default Overflow tank location

Hi guys, just wondering if I'm missing some engine bay parts from my 2006 WRX? I compared multiple WRX engine bays to mine and looks like I'm missing the radiator coolant overflow tank at the front of the car near the radiator, or I can't see it.

Also did some WRX's not come with the air intake scoop at the front of the engine?

Thanks

(Sorry if this is a dumb question, just trying to learn)

You are missing the ram air scoop in front of the air box and the overflow because of the aftermarket radiator.

Thanks for that, should I buy the overflow?

Where does the cooling system vent to now? When coolant expands, it goes into the bottle. Then when it contracts, it sucks back in. If there's no bottle, it'll suck in air.

Based on the picture, are you sure the overflow bottle is missing?

What is that bottle in front of the battery?

That looks like a Mishimoto radiator.
So the overflow bottle would normally be there, in the standard location, with this radiator

The bottle in front of the battery is washer fluid. Not sure why it has a yellow cap. You can see an overflow line leading off the top of the rad and running down and to the left of the car. So maybe the overflow bottle is hidden in this picture.

Or, when the previous owner installed the Mishimoto, he just did away with the overflow

which would make them a fool

Washer fluid bottle in different location in 2002 so something looked off
