Default How are you venting a sumped tank?

Ive got a 95 ta with a turbo 5.3 4l80e combo. Now iv sumped the factory tank. But i have no idea how to vent this thing. This is a street/strip car. All i can find is run a 3/4in line out of the tank to the atmostphere. Any way to keep some fumes down? Im going to be running a 2.1gpm fuel pump. Thanks guys. Its great to have some experts on tap.

Being that its a steel tank weld a bung the size of the feed line to the filler neck. Run an AN hose off it. That will vent the tank.

Would you just vent it to open air? should i run it into a check valve?

I always run a rollover valve with a small breather on the top...think my chassis guy gets the setup from bickle or mcamis. Only around $20 in the parts. May be tough to get that under your floor, sticks up about 3 inches. Chuck
