1. Anyone know if the factory 82 tank would have baffles in it for EFI? (havevn't dropped mine yet to see but from the factory it did have the 231 CID V6 option)
2. If not, what tank would be recommended for a factory style fit that could allow me to run dual pumps for a turbo LS swap pushing about 700hp?

-Thanks

Introduction with more on the Elky would be nice. Have you looked into '85-'87 4.3 factory tanks?

Will post up the Elky soon. I was researching a bit and found the 4.3 tanks might work but was just on Rockauto and so far I haven't seen a tank listed there that says its sump is baffled so that kind of threw me off. I started with 87.

The Elco has it's own style gas tank, different from the coupes and wagons. I read somewhere that B-Body tanks fit in El Caminos. I found this thread a while ago on another forum while doing research for my wagon. Hope you find it useful: https://www.elcaminocentral.com/showthread.php?t=29808
