Sorry, but could you please tell me that the fuel tank sitting in the trunk like that is just a joke, right? You're kidding right?

^ thanks, I didn't see a problem with it either. I think it was my best option considering that my stock tank needed replacing anyways. and this holds 16gal so...no brainer IMO

Looking for advice on the brake mc/ booster options.

I've been considering doing a dual master cylinder setup without a booster just because I can't seem to source a booster and it would eliminate any clearance issues..

What do you guys think about this? is it worth it, or should i hold out untill i can find an e28 or e21 booster?

E28s use a hydraulic 'bomb' setup. A little bit of a different setup compared to a regular booster. Check out realoem.com, it should give you an idea of what lines and stuff you will need to run if you choose to go with the E28 setup.

A dual master system is rather pricey IMO, and then the hassle of setting things up with pedal ratios, balance bars, etc etc... I sure as hell would be too lazy for all that lol. Hold out for a booster. Try to find a used one as its much cheaper... I do have a line on a new one if you are interested, but its pretty pricey.

I think he was referring to the fact that it looks like the fuel cell is just plopped there. You didn't show any frame or straps that you need to hold it in place.


Also to make things easier why not just mount the BOV inline with your IC piping?
Get/make something like this

and get it welded to the IC piping

-or-

buy one of these


I used one on my car

BPU on this, like downpipes, boost controller, FMIC and injectors and some sort of fueling control. It could see high 300's low 400's at the wheels.

Thanks for the advice guys, I'm still going to hold out for a used booster, but closer to spring time if i still havn't found one i'm going to build a dual master setup.

AS for the fuel cell, it is just sitting there right now, it's currently not hooked up to anything. Once i have the rest of my fuel system I will include this complete setup in this thread.

The blowoff valve is not going to be remotely mounted, I'm going to have a flange welded onto my i/c piping.

I just picked up a front mount, and i'm buying an electronic boost controller from a friend. also I do intend to use a 3" downpipe and exhaust.

Thanks for your input guys!
