Coolant expansion needs relocating

Alright so I just installed MM dual Eletric fans, they are enclosed in an aluminum shroud that fits flush to radiator, the problem is with the shroud the coolant expansion tank has no where to sit so i have to either relocate or find a smaller expansion tank. Idk if anyone has dealt with this problem and has advice or if any one has any smart ideas

i have dealt with this. but my setup is probably different. i boughht a tank off summit racing for like 6$. but i dont think you will be able to put yours in the same location because your cai/intake.

its hard to see in this picture, but its at the bottom left, right next to the msd box.

not sure. the main thing is that is will catch the overflow. so you can get away with smaller than stock size. i believe i have seen people mount smaller sized ones on the frame rail by the battery.

Yea that's what I was thinking about doing, my stock tank has an outlet for pressure to escape but iv seen aluminum tanks that are completely sealed off, if I get an airtight tank should I just drill a hole on the top for pressure to get out?

What about in between the fender and inner fender on the drivers side? I actually just have a bottle sitting there with the overflow tube running down into it. I need to get an actual overflow tank and mount it there

no, down towards the ground almost right behind the front bumper. Should be an open space where you can see in between the inner and putter fender.
