Ink, before I make this post, I apologize but I must go to the darkside..

I am going to go to a header tank. There I said it. It doesnt feel good but I said it.

With the new redline at 1/4 tank left. Even with a fuel magnet, I am on the verge of running lean. Not only that but I lost a minute of flight time. I have done all I can to avoid having fat hips on an otherwise svelte and sexy machine. But it looks like she is goin cornfed.

I'd run 2 if it would give me more flight time without the saddlebag look.

Just a little backup system, thats all.

Edit: I was wrong about the perry pump function, but it should help the situation nonetheless.

Consider installing a perry pump to pressurize the tank more consistently.
perry pump doesn't pressurize the tank, it draws fuel.

Thanks Dave..

BEFORE I put on a header though, I will try an Mp5 pipe. I am having a hardtime putting a header on her. They look like they had WAY TOO MUCH cornbread and milk with those things on there..
