fuel cells are good for weight reduction. you can get a very small tank to replace the bulky stocker. they are also a lot safer. you will not improve you too greatly, but it will make a difference

You can get them at alot of places but if you are on a budget than you should just get a summit fuel cell.

Fuel Cell is NOT 'required for most classes'......
You could take the stock tank off the car and get a sump kit for it.
I saw one advertised in Fast Fords & Mustangs a few weeks ago that is made to fit a Fox body and has 2 1/2" NPT outlets.
I think this is wahat I'll do for my '84 instead of using the cell I already own........

BTW, if you really want a cell, Summit sells them new for about $100 and another $30-$40 foor the mounts......
