As i said about thos even if you tried a bonnie or speedmaster tank, sure they have fuel pumps in them, but they are likely a totally different one that even if it mounted the same (VERY unlikely) they likely would not work with the Tbird's ECU

In short, you're barking up a tree thats not even there. It just ain't gonna happen, at least not without major modification and major $.
I understand what you are saying, but if you owned a FI tbird, you would have the
correct fuel pump to potentially put in the "other" tank. I doesnt seem that far fetched to me, if it would actually fit.
