You ditched the washer fluid tank completely instead of just going to the small one? It looks like the angle of the pipe wouldn't allow the small one to fit either.

HUGE improvement on the Shadow'* engine bay!

Yeah, I am working on getting the stock tank to fit, and somehow make the intake fit. I need to get a better intake anyways,
