    Upgrades = Saleen supercharger kit with JDM tune, 3.4 pulley , keene bell boost a pump , 62mm Twin Throttle body with spacer, EBC drilled grooved vented discs up front with red stuff pads all round , Boost gauge and Fuel psi gauge ,oil seperator, Additional cooling fans for heat exchanger, 7 row oil cooler BMR rear lower control arms. Exedy stage 1 clutch kit. 481Bhp total. Plus all the normal refinements you get with a saleen mustang production number 192 of 945 for that year.. New PB at santa pod 12.75sec 1/4 mile

    Fuel tanks used for racing frequently use foam instead of baffles these days.
    Might that be easier to implement?

    good thinking AT. would having a tank made been easier than ordering a direct replacement as to put baffles in you got to cut tank open??? just a thought rancheo

    I’m guessing you are having issues with fuel being pulled away from the electric pump?
    This is why many EFI systems retro fitted to older cars retain the mechanical pump to fill a swirl pot and the high pressure system runs off that. I seem to recall you didn’t like that idea for some reason?

    my modifications are inspired by what OEM do as they have the funds to get it right. my tank is a "bit fragile", the tin worm has been feasting on it. i will need to cut open the new tank to fit the pump so will do baffles at the same time. foam will need some form of restraint to keep it away from the fuel .gauge sender unit. in the old tank i fitted the pump at the front of the tank, its better at the back but my tank is shallower that end. the new one is the same depth all over and slightly bigger
    so hopefully when i get this done/ get this right i won;t have to drive around with 3/4 of a tank of fuel i can not use. then maybe do something about going to a show in Sweden i dream about before it's too late

    Modern tanks are usually located forward of the rear axle and are deeper so suffer less from fuel being pulled away. That said, if your only issue is tin worm then why not repeat it?
    I would love to do Vesteras too.
