Started a new project

Recommended Posts

I wasn't sure where to post this. But since I am going with an RB25 I decided to post it here.  I bought a 1971 sock 240z shell and a 1971 that used to be a race car. Then I swapped the coil overs and the AP racing disc brakes into the stock car. I have sold the race car and have started doing the roll cage. I should also have the fuel cell in soon. I am really excited about the RB25. I am constantly watching videos and reading about it. The car will be street legal but defiantly be able to handle some track days.

It wont fit in the factory location. The spare tire well is going to be removed. Then a new thick piece of sheet metal welded in. Then it will be cut for a 16 gallon cell. It will look like this. I may not plumb it to the side fill location like the orange car in the picture. I am not sure if that is legal in all racing and autocross organizations. Some of them require the fuel cell to be covered.

Is there any paticular reason you want the fuel cell? I originally installed a RCI "fuel cell" into my car, only to remove it and put the stock tank back in along with a surge tank and two pumps. You could easil fit a surge tank in the spare tire location and cover it with a piece of aluminum. This way you dont have to hack up your floor and you will have a fuel system that will work under extreme Gs.
