replacing stock tank with fuel cell?

saw the question in another thread but didnt want to clog his thread, im looking at removing the stock fuel tank for a RCI style fuel cell, i notice there is a few emissions parts on the stock tank as well as pump etc, can just delete that stuff and put a inline pump in and be done. will i have a bunch of trouble codes/ engine light?

You would have to "trick" the squid box, etc. I have a bladder cell with custom plates to run the factory sending unit, pump, purge, return and fill so it can be smogged. Would be easy enough to build, even with an Al cell

simplest would be to contact alltech motorsports aka zukizzy aka wayne aka dad and order a cell that would fit your stock pickup stuff or have him make you the plates to mount your stuff to and acquire the cell yourself.

you can do it all yourself but it will look cleaner and save you a lot of hassle if you just buy the plates from wayne. he started doing his fuel stuff a few weeks after helping me and sorting out fuel issues for another car.

this is how I did mine on my 06 when I 4-linked it.



Cut out threaded piece from stock tank and put in oven to get perfectly flat. Drill 8 holes in poly piece and cut hole in fuel cell using 8 holes drilled in poly piece as template so you can turn the unit as needed so the float doesnt hit anything. Apply good silicone and hook up your lines to your evap box. I used a Summit 20 gallon fuel cell and the unit came about 3/8" from the bottom so it draws fuel well. why waste money on another pump when all you have to do is fit what you already have into a new cell?

so how do you do this "trick" so you can get rid of the evap box and all that wiring, so you can run basiclly just a stock pump in a cell?

Search this section, I know I've seen it or at least mention of it in here.
