Will the fuel lines come out in the stock location or in the trunk? I'd be in if they come out in stock location. Extra credit if they make the 22 gal to fit the 65!

all the later tanks to a 70 fit in a 65 so why wouldnt this one?

ive used both the 69 and 70 tanks in early cars..

on most EFI builds i use a "ricks" tank - they are nice- stainless and can be custom made for more exhaust room- but they are $1000 + or so.. and for a mustang i have them made narrower on one side to make more exhaust room as the tank isnt centered

i want to put a 4bbl efi setup on the wifes car this year and for that i think the tanks inc tank will be more than sufficient and for the majority of the efi conversions that are done.

the ONLY tank that comes out in stock location is a ricks that i know of- i can get those as well but thats no where near the price point of these-

im not a fan of the stock tank with a sump welded - or of using 2 pumps and a pump to a remote tank -

i much prefer the OE style with built in baffles so the tanks inc is the closest at this point- unless spectra in montreal ever makes a efi tank for mustang then it might be in the stock location- like they do the camaro oe efi tanks

the issue with a early mustang is the sender and the feed is the same original hole- even if someone made a tank that had the OE location for the lines there isnt a off the shelf pump to buy that would fit properly and be easy or cheap to replace- they would need to make a tank with a bolt in flange for a pump then another flange for a sender-

hard to have everything with the economy price

Sounds like you have done a few swaps, so tell me, what is going to be my biggest hurdle? Putting a 90 motor in the 68. With the Tanks tank obviously.

the biggest hurdle is the efi wiring- the rest is quite straight forward--

ive done the conversion many different ways- using the fox intake and wiring a few times (not into early mustangs but other cars)
- but personally i think they look "wrong" in a early car and i would use standalone or msd atomic or fast efi- so can use a 4bbl intake and stock looking air cleaner but thats me.

now i know most will probably check CJ and they have the tanks both with or without the pump and sender. this should be more than10% less after adding the shipping cost .

I am interested in what kind of price you could get with a group buy as I am dangerously close to pulling the trigger on an FI Tech set-up.

But just so you know, Spectra IS already selling a stock style tank (16,20 or 22gallon) that comes with a fuel pump and sender in the stock location. In fact there is post about one in the Mod & Custom section, I am already leaning in this direction.



ET: 12.7@109 mph
ENGINE: FiTech EFI, DSS 347, AFR 185s, Vic Jr, XE274HR cam, MSD ign, Hooker Headers, Magnaflow exhaust
DRIVELINE: Tremec 3550, Pro 5.0, Fidanza AL Flywheel, McCleod clutch, 3.55's, 13" GT Front & Cobra Rear brakes
SUSPENSION: 17" TTII's, 235/45 tires, 620 coils, Shelby drop, 1" & 3/4" sway bars, Monte Carlo bar, S&T strut rods, Bilsteins, & roller perches

i saw the 22 but never saw the other tank sizes till i looked today--

im just concerned with the baffles (or lack thereof) in the spectra tank-

anyone used a spectra tank and how is it at less than 1/4 tank? no issues?

i will see if Scott drake has those less than rock auto -

Do you have any more info or pics of the Rick's Tank that are custom made to provide more exhaust room?

The exhaust tips I want to run (same ones that GT-Rich used) are really close to the spring shackles and tank on the driver's side may not fit the way I want them to. If there is a tank that gives some more room, I'd be interested to see it because I really want to use those exhaust tips.

the ricks tanks i have made are the same as what is on my car.. should be some pics on cardomain still-

i have full 2.5" mandrel exhaust with v bands and the last foot beside the tank is 3" stainless - i highly doubt would have fit with a stock tank

I just went through your pics on car domain and didn't see it. If you have some that you could post, that would be great.
