    So I was looking under the car last night and got to thinking. What are your thoughts on making 2 fuel cells that would fit were the stock mufflers go and connecting them with -12 line and a vent line like stock connecting them too and maybe putting a shutoff valve between the the 2 cells so when I am racing I can keep less fuel in the tank. I took some measurements and it looks like 5 gallons on each side easily.

    Then put the mufflers mid body and tail pipes, not sure if I want to run before the tires or extend them to the bumper. With the hopes of making the exhaust in aluminum to save weight. If someone can PM a dude on YB to see how much he makes aluminum mufflers for that would be great. I guess I don't have enough posts yet.

    Also what are the thoughts on my 2.5" header collectors? Are they holding me back at 500 hp? And I'm hoping to make more.

    Chris,

    Do you get much noise/vibration in the cabin with the aluminum diff bushings and that support bracket ?

    Not that I've noticed. It rarely gets driven on the street but when the street tires are on its smooth.

    I think you are fine with doing anything you want with the diff mounts. But when you put aluminum subframe mounts on then it gets rough and you can hear everything in the rear.

    95lx on tccoa got all of Siskas old stuff and I rode in the car at carlisle and it is rough and you can hear the detroit locker doing everything. My car is smooth compared to his.

    Not sure how the DLF subframe mounts affect ride.

    Hope you can make it out to carlisle. Whole bunch of different stuff out there to take in.

    I am interested in seeing the fuel cell setup you are considering.

    Also hope to check it out at Carlisle this year.

    Hopefully my car will make its debut there. Might not have the engine done but it should be painted by then.

    That makes sense, and the small amount of drive train and road noise I'm hearing now is most likely coming from the new sub frame connectors.

    UMHV bushings will isolate more road noise and vibration when compared to aluminum. The DLF setup made a hugs different in keeping the whole rear from moving around. And my original
    bushing came out looking like new

    I am about done with my fuel cell the thing that surprised me is with the extra gas I had to run in the stock tank and all the stuff I pulled off the car from the stock fuel system I shaved off between 60-80 lbs not to mention that all the weight of the new system is behind the back wheels. Figure to see at least 1.5-2 tenths off the 1/4 mile
