    Very nice quality piece, I must say.

    My comment in the other Tanks thread about the vent valve was incorrect. It's actually a check valve that only lets air in as the liquid volume decreases and wants to pull in air. It won't let fuel vapors out.

    Any rate, overall very happy with this set up.

    I bought a blem for about 40 bucks off and reused my existing pump. So all told it was about 400 with shipping.

    I'll take some shots of the car with it installed, but the pics of the tank itself is on their website.

    I used the stock 4th Gen one with my EVAP 1973 tank into 1978 swap. The valve
    taps into the EVAP canister plumbing....

    Yeah, I ended up going back to my old third gen EVAP set up today. Required me to drill and tap a 1/8 NPT into the fuel level sender to put another EVAP port on the tank. Also, the third gen sender had a little check valve on the vacuum port to prevetn fuel from being sucked out... I had to remove that and use it to build a separate little external module to go in line on the purge line from the cannister.

    I have that same EVAP valve you're showing from a 3rd gen Camaro that I had been running with a '91 cannister and purge solenoid.

    The Tanks check valve wasn't enough to keep fuel vapors from escaping while the car is off, sitting in the garage. Garage smelled like raw fuel the next day.

    Have any of you heard of Finch or II much fabrication? They have excellent vents I would suggest you look into them to attack the vapors. Simple install and an hoses

    Actually my set up works well for my application since the ECM, using the factory CCP settings, is already calibrated to work with the equipment I have.
