What size fuel cells are being used in AI or are people mostly using stock?

I'm still stock. There are several people using cells that should chime in here.

22 gallon Fuel Safe Cobra cell ( that you can only get 20 gallons out of) I use the 2000 Cobra cell in the 99 and the 95 Cobra cell in the 93. I run external pumps on both with custom pickups. I don't suggest the external pump setup unless your horsepower dictates it.

We use a modified version of the Cobra Fuel-Safe. It uses a a big intak pump with a custom pickup, and a top fill instead of stock style, and you can indeed insert 21.5 gallons of fuel into one of these. I think the 1/2 gallon is due to the pump and pickup apparatus.

Oh yeah, you can get 22 gallons in, especially with the fill neck, but getting all 22 out, now that is a different story. With the cell so long and the sump that sits a 1/4 inch above the rest, and the fact that it doesn't sit level in the car, they don't let you have all 22.

I decided to hijack this thread since it's similar to the question I was going to ask.

Does anyone know if there are any differences in the two Mustang Fuel Safe fuel cells besides capacity. It doesn't appear so from reading the text on their site, but it seems strange that adding 2 gallons of capacity would make the price go from $1000 to $2000.
I'm wondering if maybe the smaller Street Cell doesn't have the bladder or something else is "less safe".

Also, for those of you who are using a different cell, what brand, what style? Is it in the trunk or in the stock tank location?

I'm getting ready to replace my original fuel pump and thought, "while I'm in there..."

Should I order the 190-lph pump or the "big" 255-lph pump?
