Header tank has split by the looks of things - a common fault.

A search on here will find loads of info about replacements.

A number of owners have found this one to be a cheaper alternative -

You can also use the Gen 2 R8 cooling tank, which is about $100, but it requires a custom mounting bracket. I doesn’t have the seam that splits, so it shouldn’t re-develop the problem over time.

Looking at the video again, this looks to be more steam than smoke, which mean’s definitely coolant tank.
