coolant recovery tank

My recovery tank has a crack right where the mounting bracket is so that under normal conditions I loose no coolant, but when I get after it, the coolant sloshes out and steam comes from the hood.

Not a good way to show up at a restaurant. I have tried to find a factory bottle, but I cant find a listing for a turbo specific one. Is it the same on the v8?
Also what other options have people successfully used to mount an aftermarket/ universal recovery bottle?
Thanks for the help

Not the same as the V8..... the V8 one is located on the outsode of the core support. I bought a new one a few years ago from some mustand restoration web site, but I dont remember the site or how many they had Sad

I'm moving this week, but I think that I packed one up from the parts car. It might take me a week or two, but I'll let you know if I find it when I get unpacked.

The V8 one should work fine, and has more capacity that the 2.3T one..... something like 3.5 quarts. Be sure to grab the upper mounting bracket along with the tank.
