My Airdog 2 arrived today

Box was sitting on the porch when I got home tonight. I ordered a DF 130/75 from Kyle at Xtreme Diesel and it was drop shipped straight from Pureflow. When I looked at the box much to my surprise it turns out they shipped me a DF 165 instead. That surprised me. I don't really have a need for 165 GPH but I guess it's cool. It looks like a nice kit. I'll be installing it this weekend. I'll try to shoot some pics and do a write up when I do.

I thought the DF 165 was for the 6.4 powerstroke . Maybe it works fine on the 6.0L if you have the right fittings. I would check your fittings before getting to involved with the install. The 6.4 uses 1/2" quick connects while the 6.0 uses 3/8". I would double check or call airdog and make sure the DF 165 will work.

The box is labeled DF 165 for Powerstroke 6.0 as is the instruction manual. The connector box is labeled DF 130/75 and has the 6.0 fittings and connectors. Good thought though. That was the first thing I checked.

the DF165 is a nice unit, its what I sell a good bit of, you will be happy with it!

Glen, the benefit is supplying your injectors with more fuel, more is always better, less failures on the fuel side of the injectors, you already have the oil side covered with your oil bypass, then you are also removing the water from the fuel and air from the fuel prior to getting to the injectors, all of these are pros, pureflow makes some claims of MPG increase with the pump, but I couldn't say for sure, since most people do a pump when they do injectors so there are alot of changes at the same time, hard to say what did what.

The boat I'm in are my injectors are still running pretty good (knock on wood) and I really don't want to spill out the cash for some different ones until at least one fails. Can I run the airdog with stock injectors?

Yeah I will be running it with stock injectors for a while. I am putting it in because I don't have any faith in my factory pump. When I change fuel filters I have always had to leave the top side cap off and cycle the key to fill the bowl with fuel, then put the filter in and the cap on. If I didn't do it that way the system would never prime no matter how many times I would cycle the key and let the pump run. I didn't think much about it until I put a fuel pressure gauge in while installing my Vegistroke system. My pump wouldn't maintain 50# of pressure even getting on it mildly. With any significant load my pressure drops to 30#. It is always my philosophy to upgrade when I have to do repairs if at all possible. Since the AD2 was cheaper than the factory replacement pump this one was a no brainer.

I ordered a 130/55 and they sent me a the exact same thing as you that's weird. Is this pump a 130 gph or a 165 gph?
