Re: Washer tank to replace Bwoody unit

Ok... Made some progress yesterday. Here's a parts breakdown:

Not pictured: the mounting bracket I fab'd up for the OEM Pump Motor. Just a piece of bent bar stock with some bending, drilling & dremeling.
Here's the mounting and the fluid sensor:


And one more tip:

Re: Washer tank to replace Bwoody unit

Thanks. I'm not sure what to do. Everything should be in when I get back from China. I've already ordered a plastic rivet gun with extra rivets and the extra air intake sensor. I'll have a few days off work so I may head on over to the autoparts store and get the parts for the tank fix.

Is this the correct tank?

Re: Washer tank to replace Bwoody unit

Not the exact one I wound up with, but it'll work.
Extra air intake sensor? ¿Por que?

I've heard it can be difficult to get the sensor out. There is a dealership 3 minutes from my house and they are so damn cheap I figured why not

Re: Washer tank to replace Bwoody unit

A-kon: I just gave mine a twist & it popped right out. Just be careful not to touch the sensor or get any dirt of grease on it, and you'll need some sensor safe gasketing silicone to keep it in place and sealed in the BWoody.

Thanks Scott. It was a fun project... Kinda weird that the hardest part about installing a cold air induction is the wiper fluid tank. And here's the final result:

You can sorta make out my bracket for the pump motor. I really should have gotten a pic of it before the install. It's just a piece of bar stock, I heated it, put a 90* bend in it, drilled a mounting hole and dremeled a recess on each side of it so the hose clamp won't slip. Paint it to keep the rust away, and Bob's your uncle.


I bled the system with tap water... why waste all of that valuable blue stuff?


The weakest part of the assembly is the BWoody-supplied bracket. It's plastic, and I'm concerned about it fracturing due to fatigue. I'll probably make one out of bar stock.


And finally, don't put the low-level sensor where I did. It's in the way of the mounting bracket and causes a little bit of interference with the wiper tubes.

And, might I add, I'm having a lot of fun with this intake. Along with it, I also had my TB punched out to 84mm and installed a Borla ATAK. I'm currently working with Johan to get my tune dialed in.

I've been downshifting a lot. I don't even turn on my stereo anymore.

Having the Bwoody CAI installed at dealer (family works there) prior to pick up. Is the splicing something those guys can get done fairly easily? after the harnesses are spliced together will the system work as intended (with bwoody washer bottle), or is further modification needed? any info will be greatly appreciated. I'm admittedly not really that handy of a guy, so, anything I can have done by someone more knowledgeable is my preference. Thanks in advance.

Did you tap in the wires or use the factory since you used oem pump?

Will the factory cables reach?

Re: Washer tank to replace Bwoody unit

Scotty, do you have part numbers for the OEM pump and low fluid sensor?

If my hamfisted soldering skills can splice it all up, I'm sure somebody pulling $45/hour can do the same. The pump that comes with the BWoody kit will NOT give you factory functionality: You can wire it up to either spray the front & back at the same time, or spray only the front. I threw the BWoody pump out; it was weak as hell, anyway. To have the system run the way MOPAR intended it to, you'll have to go back through this thread and rig some stuff up as I've outlined, or come up with something similar.

The factory wiring harness for the pump is not long enough to reach where I mounted the pump motor. One could, feasibly, mount the motor closer to wire harness in order to avoid splicing into the harness. I spliced about a foot of wire into the leads in order to mount the pump in a more obvious and accessible place because if I ever run the system dry, I'll need access to the pump in order to bleed the system.

No. I just repurposed the stock parts. Go here and have fun...

Thinking I could gravity feed the pump and use some vinyl tubing and a hose barb connectors hum. Wheels are turning

We are in the same boat. No doubt Scotty's solution is the most professional solution I've seen to date, I'm going to go with the Mongoose solution. It won't look as professional but it's a lot easier for someone like me who has neither the time, patience, nor skills to do what he has done.

If you're curious about the Mongoose solution look through the thread, I posted a link to it on page 2 or 3.
