What is the difference between a TR8 EFI tank and carb tank. Is a TR7 EFI tank the same as a TR8 EFI?

We put EFI in a TR7 and simply added a Bosch clone fuel pump below the tank where it can gravity feed.

The TR8 EFI tank had a primitive swirl pot in it

Jim, My last rendition of mine sure needed one.
Ran out of fuel at right hand sweepers when it got below a qtr. tank

I suppose Dan might be interested in knowing that. OR, maybe it's just your warning to stop for gas!

Out of a TR7

So the TR7 EFI tank does not have a swirl pot? Or do you know?
