    Thanks, hopefully someone will weigh in who has used one. Just in the planning stages. Seems like a better option than replacing the fuel tank but my engine compartment is pretty crowded.

    that is a separate part. the aeromotive phantom setup would be separate form the gauge sender too.

    Personally, I like my EFI gas tank...seems a lot easier to me than installing all of that Fuel Command Center and trying to find room to mount that stuff up near the motor somewhere.

    I'm leaning towards getting the tank
    What did you use to connect the tank to the EFI ?

    The command center on our cars is not the way I'd recommend to anyone.. there is really no good spot unless you want to relocate something else.

    I went with a tanks inc tank and running a single hose from the tank through a corvette filter and single hose to the engine.. best way to go

    If you read (and it's a heck of a long read) through those Chevelle forum threads posted above you'll discover that many, if not most of them ran into issues with their command centers. In the beginning of the thread they all seemed to be in favor of the command center but that changed as they lived with them and problems arose. The most recent posts favor the EFI fuel tank setup. There was a similar story on a Corvette thread I saw as well. Basically the command center sounds like a last resort if there is no way to convert your tank to EFI.

    You can get the plug-n-play tank/pump setup from Tanks Inc. for about $500. Seems a bit pricey especially if you already have a good tank. Is there a cheaper way that is just as effective? I'm thinking that one of those PA-4 retrofit kits along with one of their 5-bolt sending units should be all the hardware you need. A little modification to the tank along the lines of the video they have on the site and you have an EFI tank for under $300. Am I missing anything?
