Supercharger coolant tank-under hood, behind bumper/not in trunk

I'm looking for ideas, let's see what you guys have done for your intercooler fluid tanks!
I'm trying to not do a trunk tank, the Whipple tank is tiny so I would like to add a tank for better capacity. What have you guys done?

Working on one.


It requires a few relief cuts.

Theres nothing actually inside of these tanks right? Just a line in and line out welded on the side?

A well-suited one should have a mesh screen for ice. Input/output and drain line.

Mine has a Rule bilge pump mounted inside. The pump itself has a slotted housing on the bottom so it will not suck in big ice chunks.

For sure. The Rule is a great, inexpensive track option. I would never, under any circumstances, run it on a daily, though.
