Default Nova & Camaro Fuel Tank Differences

What, if any, are the differences between a 68-72 Nova tank and a 67-69 Camaro tank?

Reason for asking is that I am researching the fuel system for my LS swap and was looking at the Spectra EFI tanks, but they don't produce them for a Nova. I assume that the two tanks are fairly similar due to the other similarities between the two cars, but wanted to check and find out.

Any help is really appreciated.

Thanks

Interested in this as well, I assume the difference may be in the filler neck location tho?

So far, the only difference I have been able to find is the filler neck is different. In which case, I would think that it would not be a big deal to make a new one, or bend the existing Camaro or Nova filler neck to make the Camaro tank work in a 3rd gen Nova.

I was looking at using a camaro tank on my 72 nova and I found some dimensions in ebay ads that indicated the dimensions were slightly different. I can't recall exactly but it didn't seem like it would require much work if any to use a camaro tank (except for the filler neck stuff of course).
