Subscribed. Tank looks like a smaller diameter but longer, but it could just be the optics. My 150 is 24 diameter by just over 72 long.

Since it is the same size let me know if you need me to measure anything. My firebox is a 24" cube and that is plenty but I've added more air inlets and upgraded to a 6" exhaust to get it to draw right.
