AirDog II or AirDog 150?

Okay, so I'm debating on what fuel system upgrade to get for now. I can't decide between the AirDog II and the AirDog 150. Will both provide the same results?

I've heard the AirDog I will start losing pressure at a quarter tank, will this hurt driveability?

Is one harder to install than the other?

Any other pros and cons??

Thanks

JUST HAD AN AIRDOG 2 INSTALLED YESTERDAY, TRUCK RUNS AWESOME. IF YOU DONT PUT SUMP INTO THE TANK THE LOWEST YOU SHOULD GO IS A 1/4. BECAUSE OF THE FACTORY PICKUP CAN GET AIR INTO THE LINES WHICH WILL DECREASE PERFORMANCE.

I run the airdog 150, with a sump pump and my pressure never moves off 63psi, even on the interstate. I vote 150 but thats me.

I have the AD II and have no issues with it other than the pump is a little noisey. I backed the pressure down to 55PSI and it does not move even when you hold it to the floor. I would imagine they are both about the same to install. The 150 I can't tell you but the AD II you do not have to drill your tank or anything like that. I pulled my bed off while I was installing it and harpooned my tank at the same time.

Doesn't the 150 use the stock pump?

Our pumps are not impressive so wouldn't the stock pump be stressed with the airdog??

I think quite a few people who run the 150 also run a raptor pump as a pusher pump as well.

I would go for the DF165 and eliminate the factory pump altogether.

Do you actually know what the stock pump actually flows ?? U'd be surpise honestly what is capable of. 45psi min, average is 55-60psi, stock I believe is 60gph, maybe more.

I dont run the Raptor pump, the raptor pump would be the replacement of the stock pump. I choose to keep my stock pump, its the orginial pump going on 7 yrs now and pushed my 190's for over 4 yrs with no issues.
