Question Meth tank - in existing WW bottle location?

Hi all,

I know nearly everyone who has gone meth is installing their bottles in the trunk.

For reasons that I shall not mention (so that we stay on focus on topic without arguing over the reasons), I am still interested in a complete under the hood solution.

I'm surprised nobody has done a meth bottle that utilizes the existing space of the WW bottle. Of course that might mean sacrificing the windshield spray, but then again I don't use it at all (at least in Malaysia, where there is no snow).

I've searched the forums, but no hit. Are there any in the market for me to purchase, or is it a pipe dream?

Theirs utilize the existing WW bottle, just like Vishnu's kit.
I'm not interested in that due to the many flaws of the existing bottle.

I'm interested in a true PROPER (and safe?) meth tank, sitting in the front fender where the current WW bottle is. Maybe with a revised filler neck as well with a proper airtight screw on cap.

I may be dead wrong, but unless you track your car I wouldn't be overly concerned. You can duct tape the lid closed on the WW filler neck, but the real issue is overfilling and it leaking through the vent on top of the WW bottle and streaming over to the turbos.

The Vishnu PWM system is great. Easy to install, fill and refill, and flawless in operation.

This is not the only potential source of failure. Put the tank in the trunk. I did after catching the leak from the washer pump. Don't be a statistic.
To the op, these meth tanks are not fuel cells. Most will need to have a vented cap for proper operation and you don't want meth vapors in a hot environment.

A proper meth bottle, with proper vents diverted properly (away from engine bay), new filler neck and airtight screw cap, and not connected to the WW pump at all. All in the original WW place in the fender.

Really such a dangerous idea? Come on guys, biasness aside, that idea can't be something of a bad one, right?

I don't think your idea is bad at all.

The closest thing I can find is a universal bottle like this that might fit in the engine bay (haven't checked for space yet).

Looks pretty damn nice actually.

Pity it only holds 3 quart though. 1 gallon or slightly more would have been ideal (my target was about 4-5 litres).
