Just wanted all to know it was a perfect replacement no major changes had to be done.

Until you want your fuel gauge to work properly

You are right my fuel gauge is off about a 1/4 tank. But now I have the swap done and all was going well than yesterday I was out and ses light came on so checked it out I got bank 1 lean bank 2 lean. I don't know what to do this is the same thing that the 98 set up Was doing

Sounds like the common denominator is that walbro pump. Why did you feel like you needed a new tank anyway?

If you are having the same problem, I'd got back to the metal tank (fix your gauge problem), and replace the pump (lean problem). Hope that makes sense. Also, have you replaced your filter?
