.... I'd unfasten the lines to the manifold and connect the lines from the trunk and by-pass the heat exchanger. I think you'd need two pumps to run it through the heat exchanger and the ice tank. If you did, I'd use the outlet from the heat exchanger to the ice tank and route the outlet on the ice tank to the manifold. If I have ice in the tank I want the cold coolant going directly into the intercooler.
I asked the same question last year and received only a few responses, but with no real details and no pics. So..... I had to reinvent the wheel.
I routed my lines under the passenger side of the car.

I know you'll have further questions, so ask away. I will try to help as much as I can.
No, I was more interested in the component you posted. I'll google it for more details.
thanks everyone, yes drawing would be helpful willie. I'm thinking of doing from tank>pump>intercooler>he>tank
what about wiring the pump?
are your lines coming from the front close to the headers or where did you route them from?
In tank pump, with line running up the driver side from the tank into the manifold, then into the heat exchanger. From there it goes back down the passenger side into the tank. The heat exchanger is mostly useless in this configuration but probably prevents massive heat build up on the street.
Glad to help Jazz.
There's one thing I haven't mentioned yet. I have two very accurate (to the tenth degree) digital temp gauges with the gauge senders in the two tees. This way, I can monitor water temps for both systems, at the coolest and hottest points. So let's discuss the "stock" system first. On the hottest summer day, I see intercooler fluid temps in the 120-degree range. That is with a C&L H.E. with dual fans. At the coolest point, after the H.E., the water temp is 105 - 110 degrees. This is as cool as the fluid gets and it is this temperature that cools the air intake.
So now, let's dump three bags of ice in the rear reservoir, cooling the water in the reservoir to 40 - 45 degrees. So I flip my switch to the rear system, which does not run through the front H.E. What do you think my temp gauges show now? I must allow some heating of the fluid through the lines, so let's say the temp is 50 degrees. This is now the fluid temp that is circulated through the intake mounted intercooler. Much better than 110 degrees from the front system, yes? Obviously, it is hotter than 50 degrees coming out of the intercooler but nowhere near the temp in the front system.
So why bypass the front H.E.? It's obvious. It would actually HEAT the water, not cool it. So if you invest in a rear system, I highly recommend bypassing the front H.E... If not, you'll melt your ice significantly faster.....
