    Looks like a reservoir...I think he is running a water-to-air intercooler

    If I had to guess, I'd say that's probably a 3000 hp turbo system. It may be a trick of perspective, but those turbos look bigger than the 2500 hp setups I've seen. I don't think he's running an intercooler. The high pressure pipes Y directly into the manifold, and that doesn't look like it has a liquid intercooler built in. He's probably running straight methanol. You can see that each bank has two injector rails. With that much methanol, you'd get a serious reduction in intake air temp just from fuel evaporation. I would imagine the large tank on the right of the picture is an oil resevoir/swirlpot for a dry sump lubrication system, and the welded metal box between the turbos is the fuel tank.

    Hmmmm good point...now that you mention it the manifold doesn't look like it has a heat exchanger in it.

    "trash can" looking thing is most likely a dry sump tank. And those turbos can support a good bit more than 3,000hp
