Default Cheap WI parts?

I know I can get each piece of kit at DO, but I'm just wondering if any of you know of a cheaper source for any parts than they list? Everything about my "rebuild" this time around has been with the champion goal of CHEAP. So any deal I can get I want it.

I plan on using a spare PWN output on myAdaptronic with a SS Clippard Mouse Valve. The rest of the parts are fairly std though.

I need:
-Tank
-Lines
-Pump
-etc?

I can't get usplastic.com to load anymore to order a cheap tank. Plus I think it might be cool to have a central thread for collecting links to places with good prices on parts if they exist other than DO.

Having never installed water injection before, what makes a Devils Own pump different to using a window washer fluid pump?

A lot of it you can eBay also for similar prices which helps those not in US given delivery for some of those companies.

I'm actually struggling to find a cheap suitable pump in the UK. Cheapest I found was 99 and thats direct from Devils Own in the UK. Although after saying that, we get reamed on everything, so whats the difference.

Lol, they are sitting for a reason. One i need to figure out if the pump is good or not, aquamist/jr pump/solenoid unit. The other is a full AMS Evo8 kit. I'm keeping them in reserve for my own builds . Just not sure I really need to bother on the miotta.

Does it have anything to do with that big Nissan engine in your garage?
