    Whatever you call it. :D

    I was hoping that someone may have a spare so I could work on one while I still use my car.

    I'm trying to find one to modify to add a return line on it for when I run more nitrous and stuff. Thanks for any leads for one. :)

    Ever thought about adding a very small(2 or 3 gal) secondary fuel tank inside the trunk, and use it specifically for the Nitrous system?
    Since I have close to 11:1 compression in my motor, I thought about utilizing the small secondary tank so I could fill it with extremely high octane race fuel, and then shoot it into the motor with the juice, allowing me to run a much more potent shot of nitrous, while still running the premium pump gas in the main tank.

    Hm that's a good idea. I may still drop my tank to add a fitting for a return line for my fuel pump, help it run a little smoother/cooler. I bet I could fit it where my spare tire should go, that gets no use.

    I may have one for yuh give me a few days. My car is in the shop for paint and the gas tank fill whole is getting shaved due to my fuel cell being in the trunk. I will no longer be needing what your looking for so I work on getting that out if you still need it. Its gotta come out anyhow. I already sold my origanal gas tank. I'll check back on here in a few days and I'll have it out by then.

    Hey there guy! I got that thing out that you wanted. What a pain trying to get the old bolts out on that wheelwell panel so I could get that tank out. I had to do it sooner or later though so no biggy. I ended up taking a plazma cutter to the bolts to get them off. I also used the plazma cutter on the strap for that tank. I cut the strap right by the bolt so you could weld on a couple inch piece onto it to make it work again. I'll try and take some pictures today of the parts I have for yuh and shoot em off to you. I really don't know what that part is really worth. I'll try and find out what a decent price would be for you and we'll work something out.
