A t or y line is just an addition to your current setup, its a fitting that attaches to hoses, with a 3rd hose that us preferably sealed. T-lines are the best for quick filling and bleeding off air in the system.

After having done my WC without a T, I think I made a big mistake.

A reservoir is really up to you, it doesnt necessarily change the performance of the system. I have a 5.25" bay reservoir, mainly for looks.

So to answer your questions:

T-line = mainly for adding a bleeder line/filler line
Y-line = same as T line, OR for taking two hoses and reducing to one.
Reservoir = simply adds more coolant to the system, doesnt impact cooling much if at all. More aesthetics than performance.

a T line and reservoir are both used to fill and bleed the system. a T line is cheaper, but then if u have the room the reservoir is easier to use. I have a reservoir, because it looks nice and is a good way to maintain your water.
but one of these things are pretty much nessasary to get water into the system. and if u want a reservoir, any of them are good enough, i say a single 5 1/2 inch bay one, as thats plenty and you usally have plenty of room for them.

EDIT: LOL, 1 hour no respnse, and we respond within the same 5 minutes...haha

Not familiar with places that ship to Qatar...

and the T-line can be bought at a plumbing or hardware store.

Just match the diameters of the T-line to the inner diameter of the tubing.
