    Re: Walbro 255 Fuel Pump into 86 GLHS

    My understanding is that the diff between tanks (turbo/NA), and this may have become a production change, is that the turbo tanks have the "anti-slosh" dish inside them.

    Re: Billet forward and direct drums

    I agree, 7075 is a good choice, and since the part is restricted in its dimensions so as to fit in the same place, a stronger, yet lighter material is a great choice.

    Just to be clear, the certifications that trace the manufacturing process (from ore, to the heat the material was made from), don't have a bearing on the actual grade of the material (7075 vs 6061,...
