Pro Turbo fuel tank adapter :)

ok, so this is the ProTurbo tank adapter im now selling

it has 4 X 3/8NTP outs, that ill allow from -6 to -10 so you can run two -10 out to your efi fuel pumps, a -8 return and a -6 to drain the fuel from your tank perfect
or
if you only want one out, just plug the ones your not using with NTP plugs

you can use the standard intank filter and washers

This it the highest flowing adapter out there, all the passages are as big as you can get from a stock vw tank





there £40 each

unfortunatly it wont fit a Super beetle tank, but if i have 5 or more requests il make some up

Shameless plug, but very cool part nonetheless

Doesn't fit a Super! Shame on you not incorporating this into the design in the first place! What were you thinking!!

Do you have any installed pics? as I have a hard time seeing this before me. Is it a 'weld-in' type of thing?
Oh, I think I need a nice alu swirl pot to which I can connect the above part. Sell any of those too maybe?

TIA,
Walter

hi Wally, it screws strait on to the standard tank out(no welding!)

Super beetle has a 20mm x 1mm thread on the tank(if i can remember correctly! am i right?)

there is no other fitting on the market that does what this one dose for a stock tank, thats why im making them
thanks

And I just welded / drilled and tapped my tank last night for a -8 outlet.

You're 1 week too late Marco ! Very nice part BTW.

Not sure about that thread? I thought to remember that a superbeetle (or any late model) doesn't have screw-anything, but just a 5 or 6mm outlet pipe bronze-welded at the underside of the tank

I did remember filling the tank with water for the most part and welding on a 10mm pipe onto it as a main outlet to the efi pump and using the stock 6mm as a return line...??

Hi

Very good bit of engineering.

The early supers had a threaded bung to access the in tank filter, these were deleted in about 1973.

Could a similar unit be made that could be bolted to the bottom of a super tank, after drilling hole in the tank?
