Surge tank owners, tank placement.

I was wondering where majority of the community is mounting there surge tanks. I was reading nacho's thread and i seen he mounted his behind the front bumper, but as a daily driver im just afraid of something (deer or raccoon) popping up and taking my setup out.

Pictures would be appreciated.

Thanks in advanced.

Off the bracket on the drivers side above the headlight. Its like it was put there by dodge just for a alternate overflow or catch can.

I have a big ass tank (3gal) and its mounted in the trunk on a piece of MDF that is mounted to the trunk and my pumps are right next to it. I'll dig up a pic later.

E-85 will keep it alive.

I assume you put a fire wall between the passenger compartment and the trunk. ?

^^^---Love that Idea.

How large is your Surge tank/Swirl pot?

Where is your entry point for your feed from the main tank?

I'm happy to vet the problems the same way I did, some of my alternate locations included, replacement of the battery with a surge, and running the fuel feeder up the drivers side. I liked placement in the trunk, but needed to put in a rear firewall (metal) to do that. Evap replacement is nice, shut the cel up with a resistor or a tuner.


I personally think this (A surge tank) is the solution to go with if you plan on carving turns on a regular basis. I dont always have a full tank of gas, and now I dont worry about my investment when it's not full.

What do u think about putting that set-up where the water for the wipers go (remove the wiper water canister) or will that be to dangerous in an invent of a car crash? Asking because I have no use for the water reservoir thanks to the carbon fiber hood.

This is where NachO has his surge mounted, check out some of his Bosch pump threads. Lots of pictures.

I don't see it being a good idea for a daily driver to have the surge tank where the wiper fluid used to be.

I have mine where the stock battery is. I'll try to drum up some pics.

I relocated the battery to the front bumper, in front of the driver's side tire. Took out the battery tray, but made a mounting plate for the tank. Essentially made from 6x6x.125" AL. Sized to roughly give me a gallon of E85/Fuel after the Aeromotive A1000 is in it (calculated rough displacement of that pump). Walbro 255 is in the stock canister with -6 feed to the surge tank, -8 return from the surge tank to the stock tank for overflow, -8 feed to the rail from the A1000, -6 return from the RRFPR.

Also used a male and female electrical connector from FuelSafe as I found out that wiring harness/plug I made originally, would actually wick fuel from within the wire itself, and drip out of my external power connector

almost forgot to post up the pics....

Battery relocate (although I have switched it up since this pic). Front Drivers side, in front of the tire, Ballistic fab tray and optima battery:



Surge tank with A1000 pump:



Tank with original wiring (found out that fuel would wick THROUGH the wire and come out the connecor!!):


Tank, installed, with new fuelsafe leak proof electrical bulkhead connector:



Don't give me too much crap about the wiring mess, it will be tucked and tidied up at some point.
