OK, just a short update to prove I am still working on this thing. Fuel Safe is building my new fuel cell - 19.8 gal, 1.79 gal trap door collector for road racing, Aeromotive A1000 in-tank pump, FIA pro cell bladder, remote fill. Aeromotive suggested I run a fuel cooler in the return line from the regulator, so I built a receiver duct for a 3" air hose that comes from one of the side scoops and a fiberglass container for the Setrab cooler and fan. Here are a couple of photos.

I've got visions of this thing running at Le Mans. Just a crazy dream, but it's going to pack a punch wherever you run it.

Nice cooler setup!
Did Aeromotive say why they thought a cooler would be needed? Are you running a carb or EFI? Any PWM controller for the pump?

This is an EFI - sequential injection with 115 #/hr injectors, Hogan intake, 2200 cfm Wilson throttle body, and a MoTec ECU. Aeromotive told me that since it was a road race car, I would not be at low rpm enough to warrant a PWM controller (like a street car would need), but they thought keeping the fuel as cool as possible was still important to pump life, so they recommended a fuel cooler in the return line. The pump is plate mount inside the fuel cell.

A little progress. Some finish work and paint in the trunk and I can button that part up. Fuel Safe shipped my fuel cell today, so I should have it next week.

Fuel cell arrived - exactly as I ordered it. Scott at Fuel Safe was very easy to work with and very responsive. Cell is FIA certified - powder coated .063" aluminum with an internal Aeromotive A1000 pump, -10 outlet, -8 return, and -12 vent.
