way too expensive for an intake manifold that uses plastic components. i explained that in my first post... didnt you read the whole thing?

Were there any drawbacks with using this system? could you go down to 1/4 tank ?

The only way to use the canister is to drill holes in it for fuel to get in then when you do that and 1/2 tank or less you starve the canister and fuel system of fuel

Do it right and get a fuel cell , its the only proper way to keep your engine safe

Feeding line to the fuel rail should be -8 and return -6, I guess you could use the stock line for return.

i think i could probably figure out HOW to do it but it would be nice to know precisely what all i need. i know i need a big ol fuel pump or pumps, which one? there are lots to choose from. same goes for fuel cells. how do i hang the pumps? what filter do i use? will the fuel cell come with filters and hangers? when people start talking about stuff like this that i have not got the foggiest idea about i literally need a step by step guide (in BABY STEPS!). i wont have a problem running new lines back and forth, that i can handle. where can i get the best combination of cheap and long lasting components? how much line would i need? what fittings? any more specific info on wiring? does this system splice into the factory wiring for factory fuel pump? do i just cut out the stock gas tank and put a fuel cell in the back where the spare tire is supposed to go or can i put the cell where the stock tank is supposed to be? i like having a spare tire just FYI. i would also like to be able to still fill my gas tank up from the stock location instead of having to open my hatch and pumping it in that way. i would do it if i had to or if it would make it a huge pain in the ass to run the filler tube to it but that's just my preference. so yeah lots of questions about this.

Easiest way is in the tank. And you won't haveto modify the filler hose. And you'll have trunk space as well. Also you won't find a I'M that doesn't use the lower svt manifold for the runners. They won't break you should have no problems. The cfm couplers with the top speed mani or ask chaz to design the same one for like a hundred bux less. Either way for an aftermarket intake ull needthelower portion. Unless u want the ford racing one

At first i couldnt but then i bought some fuel cell foam and stuffed my tank with it and voiala' problem fixed. I can now. Although i dont let it go less and its not because i cant its because its not good for the fuel pump. i dont on any car. also i dont use the canister other than for the fuel gauge. I have extended the fuel line and stuffed my fuel pump in the back center part of the tank under some of the foam. so i dont have to worry about starving the pump due to g forces. and the foam holds it into place perfectly. I have had no issues what so ever again since i did that.

Dan... Exactly what turbo are you running? I seem to remember you said it was custom the last time I saw you but I cant remember the specs.
