cooling mist install, where to put the tank?

O.K. I went in on the group buy for the cooling mist water injection system and now have their 6 gallon tank. My problem, where the heck you put it in an Excursion? We use all the seating at times and have a two dog kennel in the back so interior room is limited.

2001 Excursion Preditor tuner, 4" Magna Flow exhaust, AFE II Dry-S, Front spring pack,
add a leaf in the rear, Rear Helwig, and Rancho 9000X all around, HPX, Reg Ret, IAH delete, SP exhaust brake, JW VB, Gauges: Boost, EGT, and tranny temp. Cooling mist EGT/boost, RAS

Waiting to install:
ITP prepump and intank

Unless you are truck pulling with the darn thing get a smaller res. or plug into the windshield wiper res....this will save you the hassle and give you the sleeper look....

Re: cooling mist install, where to put the tank?

Are you kidding? You have to have a bigger tank with water injection. Your res will be empty in about 10 miles... if your running small nozzles.

Excursions are tough. You could mount it where the spare is, but you would loose the spare. I would get a 6' section of schedule 40 PVC, a 6" to 2" wye, a threaded cap and two end caps and bolt it to the frame rail on the passanger side.Fill it with the 2" cap and have about 6-7 gallons of capacity.

I'll take a look at the wifes X this weekend and see where I would mount a tank...

Re: cooling mist install, where to put the tank?

I like the idea of the PVC pipe, I may have to look into that if I don't find a place for the tank. I will be using it for towing. I have the 2d maping fuction with EGT and boost, so I can keep it a bit tame when I am not putting a big load on the engine.
