    Mine is just a standard small block, but since I'm going EFI it's the same as if I went Gen II or III.
    I had a stock tank modified with a baffle and an in-tank pump. The pump is a Walbro 255 lb/hr pump, but is designed for 65 psi. It is similar to the LS1 pumps, but actually made for a Ford app. The company that did the work said they had problems with the LS1 pumps and this was more reliable.

    I believe Spectra is the name of another company that is selling tanks already set up for EFI. Do a search going back around a year and you should find a few threads on them. I don't know of anyone running one of them yet, but they are very affordable.

    Yep.

    Sameplace I sent my tank to be modified.
    I got my tank itself from Tamraz Auto Parts locally.

    IIRC Tank was $~100-200 and the Modification with pump installed was ~$475.
    Cheaper IIRC then buying a stainless tank from them.

    They didn't seal the tank correctly and paid the shipping BACK to them
    and then BACK to me after repairing it. Great customer service. A+++

    I was looking into a mid 80s Monte or Regal with the turbo engine. The tank
    measures to be "about" the same, just a bit smaller, but deeper. I think it is
    going to interfere with the rear mounted single muffler. I couldnt find one in
    the junk yard to measure, just an early 80s carbed model.
