    I'm currently running the Jafro monster can mod, and it works perfectly, just like factory. Except it looks like ass and the Monster cans don't last forever.

    I need help picking out a new one. Ebay is full of nice looking tanks, but none of them have the same setup as a stock 1g dsm (straw/hose from the cap to the bottom, pinhole in the cap, etc).

    Would something like this work? Normal cap on top, top nipple vented to ground and bottom nipple to the thermostat?

    I used the ebay tank below I mounted It toward the passenger strut tower using existing mounting points. The “sight gauge” was leaking ,so I plugged those ports. I also re ran the inlet and outlet to a similar setup to your picture, it also came with very soft o rings on all the fittings which were npt, so I wrapped them in silicone tape. So far so good.

    All of the ones that I have tried that have the clear tube, the tube push locks end up leaking, I also dont like the Ebay cheap look of any of the ones above including the JM Fab one, even though its probably a quality device, because of Chinese junk on Ebay it has ruined the look of those cylindrical type of reservoirs for me.

    Yes it does have a tube that comes with it, i had a cheap eBay one without one and it never recirculated and I always had air in the system, this piece was worth every penny:thumb:
