I like the cell, do you have to close off the front of the truck at all to keep it a separate space?

yup, to be NHRA legal you have to have a 'firewall' in the back too

Interesting....so since I think I might 4 link the car when the 8.8 gos in, I might have to do something like this......all it takes is a picture from another and the rest of us end up spending money huh!

Looks good. I like the rail too. clean bends.

why yes, the rail is quite nice...I know a guy that can make one for you.....wait....

I actually got the cell for free, but new they are about $160 from Summit. The only thing is that I had to drill a hole and put another fuel cell bulkhead in for the return line.

Inner bladder in that "cell"? Foam? Or just a drag race style tank?

I just remembered there was a rigged fuel line connection on that car around the rear axle, the threads/flare were different on the '75 lines and lines from the later tank so they just got forced together. It was dripping fuel one time and it just got cranked down tighter to stop the leak. Hopefully it got fixed and hasn't been like that the whole time.

foam/drag race with a bottom/rear sump...should still be alright in corners as long as I keep the fuel level up

yeah, the whole fuel system is/was ghetto as **** (I made it safe to drive, but knew I going to do all this so didn't make it perfect). for instance, the fuel filter was installed on the return line when I got it...not even with the flow in the correct direction....r

That's what I thought. I'm pretty sure you have to have teflon lined hose for E85. That was always my understanding.

no you dont, the service life of the braided hose will end before e85 eats it up.

Took advice from 3 other people on it. All said that with E85 I have to do the TFE goodies.
