I ran across an old post from Spectra on another site. they we're looking for a donor car to install their tank so it must of been early on. But Spectra themselves did not recommend this tank for use with a forced air/blown motor. Know if this still holds true?

I've read the Spectra EFI tank uses Walbro GSS-Line Fuel Pumps. I don't think they care to support or warranty radical applications. They say it supports 500+ HP. Add a blower and you're in another league. It's a cheap EFI fuel tank.

Is it possible for you guys to do a direct fill with 'hat',like that on a racing Shelby, rather than remote fill ? I am undecided at this time and may just end up with remote fill, but always liked the direct fill in trunk.

I may be interested in a 22 gallon tank only, and I would have a brand new 16ga version to sell off. Never been filled, but has been mounted.

Thanks

Couldn't wait any longer. I bought mine through CJ Pony Parts for $465 less 5% off (code IMBACK) with free shipping for a total of $441. That's the Tanks Inc., 16 GAL with EFI style internal baffling. Extra Large 4.3 liter internal fuel tray to prevent fuel pump starvation, 255 LPH internal Walbro pump, sending unit, roll over valve, and new tank to filler hose.

Where is this tank available from? I looked on their site and can't seem to find it. Also what is the price? Can a stock sending unit work for carb applications and then swapped to the in tank setup for efi?

I'm in the market for a tank. I'd like to get in on this group buy but I need one for carb (current setup) and would like to be later upgrade to in tank efi.

My plan was to get a stock 22 gallon and run the carb. Then get a 16 gal efi like this group buy and cut the top off the 22 gal to cover the lines in the trunk. The spectre posted above looks promising if I could use it for both applications and have 20-22 gal with the efi setup.

The tank is available on large well known websites like RockAuto, eBay and Amazon as well as others. It's sometimes called a Fuel Tank & Pump Assembly. More Information for SPECTRA PREMIUM / COOLING DEPOT F28DFI The price can be under $400 if you search.

I think you can run a carb. Just like you would run a carb with a high pressure fuel pump. You need the proper regulator and return for carb pressures. Then switch to EFI regulator later.

EFI gas tanks? group buy interest?

Thanks so much for the link. Do you think the pump and sending unit that comes with the tank could be taken out and a stock style put in its place?

That way I could keep my mechanical pump and line intact while I (slowly) complete my efi swap and put the in tank pump in once I add the extra wiring/return line/ect. I may give them a call tomorrow to see what's up. Thanks again.

i wouldnt remove the efi pump
you can install the return line and a regulator to drop it down to 7 psi (if an efi reg goes that low- or you would have to have a carb regulator that has a return and change that part out when you finally go efi
