    Not as far as I'm concerned. I was thinking $325-400. Cheaper than some of the alternatives but the alternatives look like a better overall product.

    Yes, but you can email Spectra for the hard facts.

    Rockauto does have discount codes ... do a Google search.

    As far as pricing .. its higher than I was expecting too. It will most likely drop in
    the next year though. Whether or not its "worth it" in MY opinion really depends
    on the fuel starvation issues. Which BTW Spectra claimed isnt a problem with my
    tank, though I experienced it. Frustrating.

    lol...$546 for a complete tank with pump and brand new :p

    Thats a deal! I paid nearly $1500 for my fuel tank and it doesn't even fit that great.

    I paid about Rock Valley $600 for my Camaro tank 7-8 years ago. Just because you over spent doesn't mean this is a good deal :p

    Yeah, I paid 125 for a brand new tank and paid 70 bucks for the Vetteworks kit to weld to my tank to convert it to the LS1 Fbody fuel pump assembly. I got the fuel pump assembly for free, so it was pretty cost effective.
