So that's the 26 gallon tank?  It seems to stick down a bit more than stock, but that's not bad at all.

the 26 gallon tank, is that for the later 74-76 cars? Is this efi a multi port or a throttle body setup? As the lost art of carb tunin slowly vanishes from gearhead culture, more of these setups will get sold I bet. I have tried to explain carbs, jets etc to a few young guys into 4 wheelers and they act as if i am describin some sort of black magic and wizadry lol

It definitely doesnt look to bad. 

It is a later tank. I have a perfectly good 1973 tank that I took out. If anyone needs it, I wont ship, but its free to a good home. So if your close let me know....

I agree, I spent a lot of time trying to get the tune right sand I just could get it to work to my satisfaction.

I have the 26 gallon tank in my gold '72 Formal. Not super noticeable, but mine has been painted black to somewhat hide it. I do enjoy no fuel spillage out the back, the added capacity, easier refueling, and the fact it is a newer, fresh tank. From the side, you cannot see it at all, and it is barely noticeable from the rear.

I was looking into changing the 'Bird over to EFI a while ago, and found this on Youtube;


Pretty good comparison w/real numbers.  Also didn't know some of these are manifold picky.

Plus its relatively inexpensive. I bought mine from Rock Auto for around $119.00.

So added volume and a fresh tank.
