Snow Perf. 7 Gallon install

I got my Snow Performance 7 Gallon water/meth tank yesterday! Tank looks good. It's all black and much more visually appealing than the agricultural white 8 gallon tank they were sending out prior to this new one.
I went ahead to install and ended up redoing most of the WHOLE kit. Talked to the guys at Snow and they said it's best to run the pump close to the reservoir, so I had to remount my pump from behind my grill to underneath the truck just below the tank for a solid gravity feed. That was the first step. Than I had to re-wire the pump and continue with the new tank install and also the solenoid so that the system won't allow the w/m mixture to seep into the intake and mess with the motor if I were on a hill and gravity did it's thing.
Over all, took a little over 3 hours to get everything undone, redone, and tested. The 10' of nylon tubing worked, but I picked up some extra 1/4" o.d. nylon from ACE to run from the solenoid to the injectors.
Here's 3 quick pics:

Super stealth haha It's what I was going for
The solenoid is the only thing that gives it away. even the nozzles are hidden because of the CFM+ :nate:

Ouch Julian! i can handle all 7 very well
well- it says it has a 5-600 mile range for EGT lowering. As far as track passes, with my old 2qt. tank I could make one pass and need to fill up. I would use roughly 1 gallon of mix for 3 runs, so I figure that's about 18-20 passes on one whole tank :nate: Can't wait! and mixing will be a lot easier too!
