Default Using Spec-C tank on other cars?

I was just wondering if a Subie owner had tried installing the tank into another vehicle. The placement looks very good, but I was wondering if it could or had been muonted in others.

No, The plastic is designed in such a way that if you place it in another non-subaru vehicle, it ignites and takes the other car with it.

I can't see why this wouldn't work, you would just need to fab up some custom brackets.

I will be using one in my Meyers Manx STi. I was going to use it as floatation at the lake last week but it got too cold...

we've had 2 customers put these in their EVOs. It's a great solution for a large capacity tank that is fairly shallow.



Shameless sales plug time:
We have 2 in stock ready for new homes Plus a 5% off Facebook promotion running currently.

Wonder where that could fit in an 08 hatch.

imma_stocker - Along the back seats may work, although not so great if you need to put down the seats for large items in the trunk. Subaru of Japan makes a Spec C tank for the 2008+ Hatch, but it requires ditching the spare tire. For this reason we never imported one.

I was thinking along the side of the hatch area. Might be able to hide part of it in the panels but will require some cutoff wheel action.

How much fab work did it take?

Because some of us are visual learners, and pics of fittings, bolt and beams are more helpful when walking into a hardware store than "bolting it in"

I didn't take much work in the EVO since they were able to bolt the brackets to sheet metal. Minimal work for that car in particular. The design accepts square bar stock, which can be purchased at just about any hardware store. Worse case, you may need to cut a few pieces of metal with a hack saw to get a layout that works. As for getting it welded, simply mark the pieces and the desired angles and then take it to a muffler shop, or fabrication shop for welding. We've had customers come in with pieces taped together in the desired orientation, we then simply welded them together.
