AirDog 2, hands down. FASS doesn't have a good reputation for reliable, long lasting pumps.

The problem with Fass isn't the customer service, it's that the pumps have a pretty bad track record for reliability and longevity.

I recommend the Airdog II DF-165. Great pump and will provide all the fuel you need for future injector upgrades. It entirely replaces the factory pump and filter. If yyou remove the stand pipe in the fuel bowl in the engine compartment you can eliminate that filter too and never have to buy the overpriced POS's again.

Cant say anything about the fass other than what I heard about the pumps going out.

I can say my airdog does a great job and was easy to instal.

The DF-165 is what you want.

The Df-165 deletes both of the fuel filters?

I have read alot of people going with the airdog(not sure which model) but it acts as primary and your OEM fuel pump is still in the loop in case the airdog goes out.
