Most people don’t give a lot of thought to swapping out a fuel tank.
According to Aeromotive, though, you shouldn’t think of it as just a fuel tank swap, but a fuel system upgrade. And with the Aeromotive Stealth Fuel Tank, it really is an upgrade.
The Aeromotive Stealth Fuel Tank is a custom design manufactured by Tanks, Inc. just for Aeromotive. It incorporates baffles that keep the fuel pooled around the Aeromotive Stealth fuel pickup during hard cornering or acceleration. The tank is home to an Aeromotive 340 Stealth return-style, electric fuel pump designed for EFI or high horsepower carbureted applications. For carbureted applications, you can run up to 1,100 horsepower naturally aspirated. If you happen to have a turbocharger or supercharger, the 340 Stealth Pump can safely support up to 900 horsepower. For EFI applications, the 340 Stealth Pump can support up to 900 horsepower naturally aspirated or 700 horsepower via forced induction. The tank uses sending unit that will work with your stock gauges.
So what does it take to install one of these fuel tanks?
Kyle Fickler from Aeromotive was able to complete the install in an afternoon with a few basic hand tools. One of the best things about the installation process is you don’t have to do anything with the fuel pump other than hook up the supply and return lines and a power source. The 340 Stealth Fuel Pump comes preinstalled on a hanger.
You’ll need a few things to complete the installation, including the proper fuel filter and regulator. You’ll also need -6 AN fittings for both the supply side and the return side of the fuel system to connect your 340 Stealth Fuel Tank to your vehicle’s fuel system. Depending on your vehicle application, other items such as filler neck adapters and other hardware may be included.
