I want some too, j/k. For the surge tank setup (Radium anyways), it would be more than hundreds. I think I spent at least $800, but that's with PTFE hose and fittings for feed and return lines. It's expensive, but well worth it in my opinion for my setup. I don't have any fuel starvation issues even WOT driving on near empty straight line or in the twisties. The plate would be a good cheap solution if it works as expected.

Yes for 99% of people that are running under let's say 800/1000 HP the plate is a amazing cheap option.If you have stupid hp and can drain the fuel bowl in one pull drag racing than that's the only exception .

Call me crazy but I've found fuel starvation to be sensitive to suspension spring rate. I was using 10k springs on a set of Tein's and never had any fuel starve. Running on RE71R tires I almost ran out of fuel on the track / autocross and never had any starvation issues. I upgraded to some KW V3s with 8k springs, same alignment settings and same tires. I was fuel starving at the same track running the same lap times with anything less than 1/2 a tank of fuel. Same thing at autocross. With the 8k springs I was having to fill up the car multiple times a track day, and run at autocross on a full tank. After working through a number of other possible causes the only thing left was the change in spring rate. I got some stiffer 10.7k springs for the KW V3s and my fuel starve issues were gone. I'm now supercharged with 400 ish whp and had no fuel starve problems at the track. So long story short, the roll of the car has a dramatic impact on fuel impact as well as the tank design. Stickier tires will induce more roll.
