      Been working on this a couple of months ago







      Made it in my parents garage, with only anglegrinder at hand to cut all the bends etc (sucks bigtime)

      Also did a custom front end, wich resulted in creating a hellaluva amount of space for the intake.

      I'm not sure yet, i've got a SS baseplate that i can bolt to the stock lower manifold + all the stacks etc. In SS.
      Weight and heatsoak wise Stainless wouldn't be the best route. But it's the only material i can work with at home, with my car at hand for fitment.

      I don't think this qualifies as being "badass" and it certainly is not on the level of all the other excellent work in this thread, but I'm proud of it. Novice welder and my first time welding aluminum. Miller Diversion 185.

      Had to modify my intake manifold to clear the compressor housing and hook up to an AWIC.









      This thread is an inspiration and reminds me that I have a lot to learn.

      had to build a fuel cell. and i use whatever i have layin around. thise thing was a huge reflector for lighting at a plant i worked at and they scrapped it cuz it threw too many shadows. i kept a chunk and have been nibbling away at it.

      made the basic shape to fit in the location i have to work with. fitted it all up and had my buddy nearby tack it together. then had Nubvr weld it out like always!!









      test fit before final welding



      fitted the pick up tubes to pull as low as i can get.



      welded out and putting the parts in it.



      fitted in place and working on the fuel lines.

      ya got me, i am pretty sure they arent designed for lift/pull to a great extent but rather push. i have always run these like this. and they have always worked flawlessly.

      i do not know what the suction rating is on the pumps, and i thought npsh was more describing an attribute of the liquid/medium and not the pump itself? but it does have some significance....

      i dont let it get too low in the cell, and it has a vent which allows atmosphere into the cell so it doesnt suck in on itself.

      but it is not so much designed to pull fuel at a "low fuel" situation, more to make sure it pulls from the lowest point and any errant bubbles that may be in the fuel itself from the return are not inadvertently sucked in.....

      i could run without the two blue fittings and be just fine, and it will work just like it does now. this gives just a tiny bit more depth a bubble has to travel downward fighting the urge to rise to the surface before it gets sucked in.

      the cell is narrower at the bottom, and space did not dictate me making a sump in the bottom for just the pumps while still holding the volume it does. i actually envisioned the dry sump reservoir next to it, but alas that is not happening so i have two other locations to play with that before moving it inside the car and to the rear. just waiting on the tank.

      Oh no doubt. I wasn't being critical of the design or the fittings. More a question of curiosity.

      I run them them open inlet at the bottom of tanks.

      I see stuff like this and wonder some times.
