i wana put twin pipes on my v8 xd (one either side), but cant because of the petrol tank being to one side, is the best way to replace the tank with one that goes in the middle, if so can anyone recomend a tank or any tips to help. im thinking of modifiing a xy tank so the filler is at the rear, will i have probs with the feul gauge.

ill use any fuel cell , but it needs the filler cap at the rear like an xd and a spare wheel well in it, so i dont loose any boot space. i cant think of any other tanks like that. ive seen a few xd xe with twin pipes
how do they do it.

i dont think u can run one from the right to the left at the rear because the tank goes from the diff right back to the bumper and left against the springs theres just no room with the current tank.

I should go looking but I was reading a magazine recently and saw a ute tank fitted to a XD to fix the problem, I think it was a street Fords mag?

A mate was modifying his XD shell to fit a XA-XC tank so he could run twin pipes, it ended up being scraped but I think he completed that side of it, but it might be a lot different as it also had a XF coil spring setup unstitched and modified to fit, :lol: all because he wanted to keep the Victorian rego going and not start with a XE (Personally I would start with a XE)
This same mate ended up running pipes each side by the easy way, he went straight gas with the tank fitted behind the rear seat in another XD.

Nah you have the same problem, the tank would just have more room on the right side.
