If you don't think it's going to interfere with your FMIC, then sure. You could find a non-new one from a part out for like $20 though.
I guess you have the starion cooler? The tank would be all up in my saab cooler.

Obviously the pump won't work.

I've got the Starion. I don't think it would interfere at all with any IC except maybe an around the rad setup. The is way over to the driver's side and uses a remote fill tube.

I keep forgetting that NA ABS cars aren't that rare in the states. Here there are very few of them.

I have that bottle stock, on my ABS car. Works fine for washer fluid.... One thing to consider, it's impossible to know if it's full or empty though visually. So, you'd either have to hook up the stock wiring to the idot light on the dash... I'm not sure if that's part of the harness for the pump or not. But definately something to consider.

Dave,

That would be pretty clean for sure. I still prefer trunk mount though.

ughh...reminds me of when i had to replace the motor in my tank...not fun.

It shouldn't get in the way of any front mount.



it's just under the brake-duct on my chin spoiler....see the black metal housing....you can see the plastic tank just north of the blue coupler.
