Got the new tank installed last night. I decided to leave the spare tire out of the trunk considering it was from the old 4 lug running gear. I got the car out tonight for its first shakedown run. Everything went as smooth as I hoped it would. I didn't bring it over 3k rpm as I was just trying to bed the brakes and warm up the tranny and rear end for the first time. 1st gear feels really short with the 3.50 rear gear but overall I'm very pleased with how it ran and rode on the new suspension. The Viking coilovers up front and the split mono leafs, caltracs, and Viking shocks rode impressively smooth. I tuned the 4 corner idle on the quick fuel carb and maxed out with 13.5 inches of vacuum which seems right in the ballpark for an E303 cam. Throttle response was crisp right off idle so I'm happy with the tune for now until I put some more break in miles on it and get the chance to wind it out a little bit.
