If your going to be running a 315 or 29.5 tire, I would replace the stock outer tub also. It will limit how low you can sit the car down. A full tub will let you sit the car down and you won't have to worry about any issues with rubbing.

I'm going to try and get mine done this winter.. I've been running a IRS, just to see how far you can push one with good parts.. Never been able to break it, but I cant run shit for a tire, which makes it a death trap at the 1/8th, nobody will prep to or past the 1/8. Once I get in a good gear and that turbo starts really boostin the car wont stay straight... So... It's time for that shit to go.. Even more so because I'm going to a turbo 408, it will be a death trap with that kind of power.


Here's what I'm curious about, the fuel cell? I thought you had to have a fire wall in order to run the fuel cell inside the car? My car is a hatch.. I haven't figured out what I'm going to do there yet.. I've seen a few hatchbacks running fuel cells inside the car, but with no fire wall...

I did mine at a buddy's house a while back. If you have any fab skill you can save some coin, its simple to do
#1 cut out inner wheel well
#2 notch rear frame rail
#3 trace pattern of the outside wheel well, move it in against the frame rail and mark the bottom to create the inner panel of the tub.
#4 measure from the outer well to the inner rail and be sure to give yourself some overlap for spot welding or rivits and final trimming.
#5 take cardboard patterns to a sheet metal shop and have them duplicated in the material of your choice and tell hem you want pittsburgh seam. tape them together in the shape they will be in the car so they can see what you want.
#6 final trim and weld/rivet
#7 relocate upper shock mounts
I have about twenty five dollars in material when I do them.













those pics are with a 275 radial, a 315 fits with plenty of room

Colt I just build a sheetmetal bulkhead that meets the hatch behind the glass. It's either that, encase the cell or sump the stocker. I like to narrow and sump the stock tank, it leaves a lot more room for intercooler tanks etc.
