Altering a known working setup is risky IMO for no other reason than the aesthetics and perceived inconvenience (which it isn't) of the tank location. Good luck whatever you do.

Ahah... I must not have read enough to be aware of the one-way valve to the radiator .... Iíll re-visit that. I agree, I donít want to mess with the way Ford designed the ECU to control the engine temperature.
