View Full Version : Fuel cell in 69 Firebird/LS1?

I'm looking at a 20 gallon aluminum fuel cell for my '69 Firebird. It has 2 8AN outlets and 8AN vent and return line fittings. I really want a Rock Valley tank, but I have a good price on this one? Do you guys think it will work ok or not? I plan on mini-tubbing the rear and think this might be the best way to go.

Two things, is it sumped? Secondly, if you're going with leafs, once you minitub, the tank will need to be 3" narrower on each side, I'm almost positive it's 3"s but maybe someone can confirm.

Yea, I'm gonna go with a 3" mini-tub in the future with the 335/30/18 Pilot Sports sitting in the garage. This fuel cell isn't sumped. I should have figured I'd need a sumped tank. That's why I'm going with a trunk mounted fuel cell, so I won't have to find a custom narrowed tank in the future.

Just ordered an aluminum 20 gal. RCI cell with sump and sending unit from Summit. It has return and vent fittings, baffled, and 2 8AN outlets. I may use one outlet for a dedicated nitrous fuel system =)
