No pictures sorry, but I definitely got the mat to work with a generic summit intake pump. Super quiet, works great!

Ok, money aside, what's better for rock crawling, 4 Walbro's or a 15x15 Hydramat?

I'll pay to play if one is better than the other. Just not sure if there is a clear winner here.

I have walboros and there’s so many little things that can go wrong and I’m not convinced they’re a great prefilter. The hydromat is just all around better only one connection if you do an intank pump. I would have gone this way when I did my cell.

I believe you can also "T" together 2 smaller mats inside the tank, which may be cheaper and/or more effective in some cases that one large mat.

Hydramat in 62 CJ5 with Con Ferr tank

Reviving this thread, which I learned a lot from BTW, to see if, by chance, anyone has used a Hydramat in one of these Con Ferr gas tanks (think is around 11 gallons)? The Jeep has a Buick 231 that was converted to a FiTech fuel injection set-up (does great except at really high altitude, 10kft+, you have to add fuel with the programmer like there is no tomorrow). I have the typical problem of going up an incline with 1/2 tank and fuel starvation occurs so plan to give the Hydramat a try.

Any tips would be appreciated, especially from anyone who knows this tank (has a metal baffle in it). The plan right now is to order two smaller pieces of the mat and plumb them together in the tank as seen in this thread.

I have installed several in customer's fuel cell doing exactly this. I confirmed with Holley's tech line it was possible before doing so. They work just like the walbros too..when one is not submerged in fuel, the other will still pull fuel with no cavitation.
