Perhaps a full view of the plan for this car would help. I am about to drop a 99 cobra motor in the car with a teskid block. I plan to forge the rotating assembly and build my own turbo kit with a 76mm Turbo .81A/R. I have dual cobra pumps that I'm going to build a bracket for in the sump. The GT bucket will not be enough fuel for my future plans as I'm looking to put down in the 550-600rwhp range. Auto-X will be a once in a while thing, but as my daily driver, I don't want to worry about fuel running away from the pumps on the brakes or in a corner with say 1/4-1/8 tank. I pretty much fill up when it gets close to or around 1/8 of a tank anyway.
Could I just buy a terminator tank and fuel hat...sure...but I have a welder and I like to do things a little different and put my creative side to use from time to time.
I know I've seen road racing style square sumps before and there is, no doubt, a way to baffle it so it works well. I don't have any plans for road course duty, so high G prolonged cornering is not likely. I just figured if anyone had experience in this area it would be ya'll.
Really I'm just wondering if anyone who has sumped thier tank or has experience sumping tanks has any input on hole placement, or maybe cutting and bending up or down flaps. Trying to complile a few different ways to get it done and see what works best...
If opening up the tank and putting internal baffleing in is the best way to go, I'm open to that too. I'll have a spare tank to play with as well...
I'll also look into bracing up the K member, but I'm not throwing slicks on and getting super serious...maybe a weekend part time warrior.
