Where is the best place to mount the reservoir? I'm guessing it cant be lower than the pump its slef and the higher above the pump the better?

As long as the fill point of the tank is slighly higher than the pump it will work just fine. If it is lower some oil might back flow when you park the car, leaving you with a mess to clean up.

i always try and mount mine away from the headers and maybe in a spot where it will get some air just to keep it a little cooler

Most I have seen, and where we mount ours are on the cage running foward to the radiator parallel to the left front frame horn.

This is where i decided to put it http://www.v8s10.org/albums/album06/CNXT0029.jpg
At first i wasn't thinking and almost mounted it much lower.

(yeah i know it's not a dirt car but i figured you guys would know more about this type of pump than anybody else )
Thanks for the help...

Afco makes a resevoir that mounts on the pump, less stuff to go wrong, I think it also comes on 2.2 chevy s10 motors, but I havn't confirmed that yet

AGR has a nice aluminum PS unit with the reservoir attached to the pump for about $200-225. I used one this year and was pleased with it's performance.
