My old 16gal fuel cell had foam in it.....the new 5gal cell does not but I could swap it over.

The new cell has a baffle between the sump and the tank but otherwise it's just a open little box.

Opinions? Does the fuel cell foam ever break down?

Yes, the foam always breaks down, regardless of what you read or what brand it is. If you are able to run the tank close to full and keep it that way then don't get foam. Foam is a must do for road racers that have limited tank capacity and have to run 20min+ sessions without a stop.
