Just an update. I have been racking my brain over the whole surge tank. I really do not want to mount my surge tank and fuel pump in my trunk that also houses the battery. There is something about having fuel components in the sealed trunk that is a little uneasy. I have decide to cutout the lower sump portion of the trunk to make room for a tray to mount the outside fuel components. The tray will be welded to the driver frame rail. Also I would rather have a loud fuel pump outside of the car than in it. Once the install is complete, I will seal the trunk with a piece of sheet aluminum. So the lower part of my trunk and the oem muffler area will be the mounting for these components. So last night I moved the muffler over the passenger side of the car, only took one cut and two mandrel bent tubes. I figured I want to keep hot exhaust on the passenger side only and the fuel system on the driver side only.

I fabricated up a piece of squared tubing to make the tray that will mount behind the car. It looks like the surge tank will be about 6-7 inches from the exhaust canister, is that enough? I would like to mount the fuel pump to the left of the surge tank. So far I'm like $45 in it for the surge tank and $20 in it for the piece of squared tubing. The tray is only tacked for now and will eventually be approximately 4-6 inches higher than it looks in the picture below. I am still looking for the best way to run all four fuel lines forward. If anyone have any suggestions on mounting location or design, please feel free to comment as I would like to get it right the first time.
