    Hey mate is this it the same as the other 6.5l tank, just bigger?? As in same spot, same operation etc.

    Withouth having a chiller though, once all that fluid heats up, wouldn't it be harder to cool down with the standard HX than the stock 2l system??

    Cheers mate.

    Yes same location, but shaped exactly the the same size as the area and with enough room to foam insulate the tank if you wish.

    The temperature of the fluid will not physically get as hot, it will also run colder, we've seen in the past when adding the 6.5L reservoir it lowers highway cruising IAT2.

    Cooling time (wiping the heat off) through the front heat exchanger will be the same, even on the 6.5L reservoir track guys noticed colder intake temps and more stable intake temps, going larger is only going to make it colder and colder for a longer period of time.

    $550 for the 12L reservoir.

    Cool down time is very very similar.
    I saw this last year when I was in the US they were using 20-25L trunk tanks and I wanted to see how long it would take to cool the entire volume of fluid right down, it's only about 2min extra and that was for a 20L tank fitted with my chiller.
