Re: Glenn's Performance Sleeper Tank

Would have been nice if they had a bit of a write up on each....

Well, after talking to them, I pulled the trigger and ordered their sleeper tank.

Do the fittings have tubes that go to the rear of the tank ?

Otherwise they'll uncover on a launch....unless baffled ?

Re: Glenn's Performance Sleeper Tank

It has baffles and tubes. I told him my combo (Holley Avenger with external pump) and he said that I should have no issues running it to E.
Hopefully it works as advertised. I can't see paying $1200-$1600 for a tank. I realize that there are benefits of the pump in the tank as far as noise but that is a lot of extra money.

Re: Glenn's Performance Sleeper Tank

Pumps are not in the tanks but support EFI. (according to the vendor). I'll take pics when it arrives.

Re: Glenn's Performance Sleeper Tank

I do have a question about venting. I have heard that I can just cut the feed line on my existing sending unit's feed tube and use that as the vent for this new tank.
Thoughts?

Re: Glenn's Performance Sleeper Tank

Seems to me you would have to remove the suction line to the botom of the tank for it to vent properly, but that is a viable idea if you can run it to a charcoal filter somewhere in the back.

Re: Glenn's Performance Sleeper Tank

The tank is supposed to ship on Friday. I still have a little ways to go before I fire up the motor and get it back on the road. Might be another month or so but I'll let you know.

Randy, it looks like you retain your factory sending unit and would do as you describe and just cut the pickup tube off of the inside. However, I'd be concerned about how to keep fuel from sloshing into it when the tank is full.....seems like you'd want to cut the portion off that curves down to the tank seam and run a line up along the trunk pan to elevate it. That's pretty much why I put my vent in the filler neck and ran the line straight up into the trunk to a charcoal can. I couldn't figure out a way to do the vent under the car and get the line set up so that all of it would be above the tank.

They've got a good description on their sumped version of the tank and need to follow suit on that sleeper tank. They show the tank for $390 and then under options it says stainless + $100. The if you look just under the tanks it says the stainless one is $600. At any rate, it looks like they're taking a $90 Spectra tank, cutting out the corner, and then putting their gear in it. If they've got the baffling figured out to where it works it might be worth the $300 mod price to not have to figure it out and then do it on your own. I'd be interested in seeing a pic once you get it.....I bet you can get a good shot down the sending unit hole.

Re: Glenn's Performance Sleeper Tank

The tank showed up last night. It is going to be really tough to get a picture of the internals. It looks like there is a box built up in the corner where the feed and return lines are. You can't really see anything else.

They recommended using -10 feed and -8 return. I bought their filters with -10 on each side but am struggling to find -10 adapters for my fuel pump. The pump has 10mm threads. Holley makes 10mm to -6 and -8 adpaters but nother -10.

Any thoughts/suggestions? I've left Glenn's a message but have not heard back yet.

-Randy

Re: Glenn's Performance Sleeper Tank

I don't think you can get a -10AN adapter in a 10mm thread. You can probably just put the -8 in it and then use a -8 to -10 coupler. If the Holley pump has 10mm fittings than it's a good bet that -8 line will support more power than the pump will.


If you're going to run -10 line I take it the dyno chart on your webpage is not current?....
