I would pull the stock tanks for 1100's and plumb them in, you def don't wanna piggy back those!

Have you done this? Not many have pulled the underfloor tanks, I'm in the middle of this project right now. Curious on pics and your thoughts on the whole process...?

Why pull stock tanks rather than run a second set of pumps?

was thinking about a second set of pumps but I'm kinda on a budget. I bought the bags last night so maybe I'll play with it before I do anything with the hard tanks.

I understand the budget thing, I have a bunch of aerator pumps that I just ripped out of my boat that I'd cut you a deal on if you go that route.

My buddy did on his vlx and it was great, I haven't done it because of how big of a PITA it was. Pretty much everything had to come out back of the boat. I would love to have it done to my boat, I don't wanna do it tho!

It's not that bad. I didn't have to remove any seat bases or structural supports. I did have to take the engine covers off though. I won't comment on how I like the setup yet but there haven't been any surprises to my plan yet.

Totally get this. But dont be on a budget with a $20k+ boat and wreck it. Throw some tsunamis over the side till you can budget the additional pumps and do it right. Youll be happy you did it that way.
