How about those razor sharp edges? I found it interesting that the bowl isn't the lowest point either. I wish the tank just had a deep sump in it with straight walls.


Razor what?

I think the bowl is in the lowest point of the OEM tank.

Am I missing something?

The outer edges of the bowl are EXTREMELY sharp. Maybe my driveway has enough tilt to trick me, but the rear passenger side corner of the tank seemed lower to me. Oh well, watch your hands!

No it would not be legal for STR,but the only way you would be protested would to tell someone about the mod to your fuel tank.
Yet, you would still be a cheater even if no one knew about it.

If, I were to modify the fuel system on a late model S2000 I would look into finding a bucket fitted to the fuel tank module similar to the one used in a late model Camaro or Corvette,and adapt it to fit.I would not cut the fuel tank.Still not legal for STR.

The ATL "drop-in" swirl pots don't fit through the top of the tank. I don't know what a late model Camaro's tank looks like. The only way we can figure getting a secure pot in there is to cut an access panel in the top.

Bump. I would like to see updates on this, as well. Looks like I'm going to have to pull my tank and figure something out.

How did you drain the tank? The manual says use a pump, but I don't have a pump. I'm used to a drain plug and the way the body is sitting (the whole suspension and drive train is out of the car) I can't easily get to the bottom of the tank.

They dropped the subframe and removed the entire tank. You can get a $5 bulb-type hose pump from WalMart.

They let the tank completely dry out for days before doing things like cutting into it with power tools....

I'm hoping they took some pictures of the work, but apparently everything went back together very well and the OEM fuel gauge is retained.
