You are right to bin the bolt on sump, it's nor required with dry sump, is the pump shown the one you are using? Single stage is limited in volume obviously, why not use a two stage?, Autocraft or Bugpack offer these, the only draw back is the pump size requires attention to the exhaust primary pipes for clearance, but that second stage can be used for any additional scavenge points you may need later, say head scavenging.
Assuming your car is LHD, I would fit the tank to help load the right front wheel, my car is RHD with the tank mounted near the light left front wheel, 5/8" supply and scavenge lines are a minimum, in my view, tanks mounted in the passenger compartment are a no no, the stink alone is one reason, ease of service, reduced internal clutter and better Wright distribution are a couple more pluses for up front mounting, they need to be fully encased with an external breather tank system if fitted internal to the passenger compartment, at least for motor sport events.
