Post Pics of Your Option B Setup

I am looking to install the option B on my car while taking care of some other cooling matters. While looking around underhood, I can't really find a place to mount the tank to a secure place without it looking like it was installed as an afterthought. Yeah, I'm a sticker for the clean factory look of things, without rigging things up Damn Cobalts have the simpleness of fabbing or buying a bracket to secure the tank to the two studs on the passenger strut tower. Unfortunately, us RLs aren't that lucky to have a simple mounting location.

So basically I created this thread to see pictures of how everyone is mounting their Option B tanks, so I can get some ideas. Now post up

Option B

I used Zip ties. They worked fine.

I thought about using zipties to hold the Option B tank to the bracket on the passenger strut tower, but with the tank filled with coolant it almost seems like it will need support towards the front of the tank. I'd be nervous about the tank falling onto the serpentine belt. Did you use additional support in the front, or just rely on the passenger strut tower bracket with zip ties?


Is there any real benefit with the pass through tank over Option B, other than the fact that the pass through tank holds more fluid?

Re: Post Pics of Your Option B Setup

I grinder off the bracket it came with and ordered the bracket the balts have from chevy house and welded that on. I will take picture if I remember. It is a shitty weld job but looks better than most opt B on most irl's I have seen.

I wish I had a good flow-through tank. Mine leaks and I don't feel like dealing with it anymore

the bracket was cheap with my discount. I think it is normally $30. Worth it IMO.
