In our previous installment of our SRT4 swap series we showed you the differences between a lot of Neon and SRT4 components.
Now onto the fuel tank. I wanted to use the SRT4 fuel tank, SRT4 fuel pump, and SRT4 fuel lines. The tanks are very similar, except the angle of the fuel inlet, and the SRT4 straps tie down in a slightly different spot. Here we have the SRT4 fuel tank on top, and the Neon fuel tank on bottom.
Neon fuel tank on top, SRT4 fuel tank on bottom.
Because the SRT4 fuel tank is larger, the straps wouldnt tie down to the Neon.
So, we have taken some 1/4 inch steel plate, drilled it, and used these to extend out the mounting points for the fuel tank straps.
Heres the tank installed with the 1/4 inch plate along with a large spacer.
Now, the angle of the fuel filler necks are different between both cars so we eventually install a SRT4 fuel filler neck to use with the SRT4 fuel tank. This photo shows the Neon fuel filler neck and the SRT4 fuel tank. Notice the difference in angles on the inlet.
