If I were building from scratch, perhaps.
But since it's already installed, no way. :)

If some one was considering a bigger header tank, they would need to consider
the effects it would have on W&B. My 2 cents worth.

By the way, I've started on the engine mount and have
confirmed that only the ring gear and the starter's snout
has to be recessed into the firewall. So the "mag box" is
going to be about 1.5" deep, and 12" in diameter. This means
that anyone considering the removal of a VW from a Q2, and
the installation of a Corvair engine, won't have to remove and
shorten the header tank like on an 0-200.

Are you thinking about making your header tank
larger since you don't need the room for the mag
box?
