    Thanks man! I do have a tank/pump, but haven't made the fuel injection leap just yet. Waiting to see if there are any new developments. Until then, enjoying the carb tuning.

    I have the Spectra tank with Walbro pump (number 3 so far) in my Buick. I have a FAST II TBI that I like a lot compared to the previous comment. The tank is a nice piece. I lost two in-tank pumps and they are easy to change if you don't mind syphoning gas, dropping the tank, replacing the pump and reinstalling the tank. Seems that ethanol, subsequent moisture are not friends of Walbro pumps. My first two went out after about 3 months each. The car was not driven much. I am using only ethanol free gas now and my pump has been in the car for 2 years.

    another tip on the in-tank pumps ...If it is going to sit...... fill it up with gas! this prevents the condensation from rusting the pump.

    I have gone through the evolution of tanks and pumps. If you plan to go over 500hp, get a 5th gen fuel module. I’m on my 3rd tank with the ZL1 pump with PWM. Should have spent the money from the get go.

    What tank did you go with because that zl1 module isn't a direct bolt in for a early year. Do you have pics?
