    Stasis (VF) Supercharger - cooling system question

    Hi all-
    I own a 2011 V10 with the Stasis SC kit. Works great/no issues.
    But since it was installed by original dealer many moons ago, and Stasis is long gone, I cant find certain information. Oddly- the Stasis website still exists, but doesn't have granular information.
    I reached out to VF as it is essentially a VF system, but they would offer no help.

    I'm trying to learn HOW this system is cooled, and if there is a separate water tank or radiator that needs checking/topping up.
    I'm sort of panicked that I may have a distinct (not fed by stock/normal system) Supercharger tank or reservoir somewhere that I should be checking, and dont know!
    Anyone? Bueller?
    Thanks!
    Im happy as long as Im ahead of you. Hidden Content

    You should have and auxiliary water tank in the front hood area, where to tools go and the fill port is by the PS reservoir. The fill port will look like a 3/4 rubber hose that is plugged at the end.

    Thanks!!
    I will look for/find it tonight.
    Noob questions- sorry:
    Is there a method to see if it needs filling (level)?
    Assume just water (ie no coolant)?
    Can I accidentally overfill and cause issues?

    Here is a diagram showing the entire VF720/750 system for the Audi R8 (Gen1) V10.
    The supercharger system employs and air-to-water intercooler which is comprised of
    the 'charged air cooler' (located in the manifold, directly below the supercharger unit)
    and a 'front mount heat exchanger' (located just behind the front bumper). It's a
    closed look system that utilizes it's own 'water reservoir' and 'water pump' (located
    in the "frunk"
    ).

    It's an incredibly efficient arrangement for up to the advertised 750 horsepower level!
