The tank is large in area but not depth. Would it not be simpler to slice off the spare tire bulge and make the trunk floor one plane?Just ahead of doing the turbo project, I'll be getting things changed over starting with removing the fuel tank, placing a fuel cell in the trunk, install bigger injectors and probably change the stock 3V slot MAF and put in a SCT MAF. I want to do away with the stock fuel tank to make servicing easier like pulling the driveshaft, tranny and rear end. Mainly, I'm doing it because I plan to mount the remote turbo in the cavity where the tank once was.
There is one guy on here that did a traditional under hood turbo on a Mark VIII. He did a great job, but I have never been able to connect with him.Yea, I haven't ruled out any position just yet. If it wasn't a driver, there are more choices but I plan to keep it as a driver so that tightens up the options. I'm not going to do it but a rear seat delete and enclosing that area opens up a bunch of new possibilities. Really, under the hood in the air filter area would still cause exhaust routing problem but might be the easiest to do. My thing is I want the engine bay to stay just like it is now and the power adder to be somewhat hidden but keep serviceability as good as I can make it. Putting it under the front bumper cover was one of my earlier ideas but of course, a quick look under the bumper and see lots of concerns.
