Fuel level sensor, maybe gauge too if you can't get it to talk to stock cluster/want to.
Filter/pump/pick up depends on what pump you get.
Filler cap, filler hose, vent hose.
If it's in a coupe, you can just have that sit in the trunk because you'll be able to have a firewall bulkhead behind your rear seat. I would have it a little lower than the existing floor and have a hinged floor with a gas strut like in the BMW X5 (before they cheaped out and removed that as stock equipment).
You'll want heat shielding if you run your exhaust in the stock location.


Other crap too, it's not cheaper than finding a stock tank and replacing it. It's not better either, unless you race in a series requiring it.

if ur still stock, get a walbro 255. i had one w/ the 2jz, and then just recently got another walbro 255. but i am getting rid of both of them for one big boy. lol.
or just use another stock one if you haven't added any power yet..

I think a fuel cell in a daily driver is kind of dumb, The CELL itself might be cheaper, but by the time you pay someone to fab mounts to make the cell fit, and do the proper venting, buying some fittings, and doing new fuel lines (cause if you're taking on a project like this might as well do all new lines/fittings. It is going to get mighty expensive in a big hurry.

^ Agreed. Have fun filling a tank in your trunk every time too. You will spill fuel, I guarantee that.

I will almost promise you that the OP didn't calculate the cost of the filler neck installation since it was seemingly cheaper than a different oem tank.

Fill the gap in the trunk with a nice Sub, or a sweet strut bar setup like the one Cusco makes that ties in to the floor.
