Air dog

Anyone have any pics of this installed. Where is the best place to put it and how do you connect your factory lines to this if you leave the stock fuel pump in place.

I am thinking bout putting the 150 on. Does anybody have any pics of this installed. My question is if it don't replace the factory pump what do you have to do cut the factory lines and make it work? Or would it be better to just go with air dog 2

The 150 is a pusher pump to the stock HFCM. It picks up the fuel from the tank and delivers it to the stock pump. That's how it ties in to the OEM fuel system. The beauty of the 150 is if it were to crap out, it will bypass and not leave you stranded. Your factory pump will still pull fuel although it won't hold pressure under WOT. But it'll be good enough to get you home with the required fuel pressure as long as you're easy on it. The other thing I like about the 100 or 150, and this is just my opinion, is that they're more reliable in the long run than the AD2 or the FASS pumps. The original air dog pumps are high volume, low pressure pumps. They don't have to pull the same duties that the AD2's do.

thanks for the info. i was planning on just doing the 150 on mine to. I kinda like the idea of replacing stock pump though and going with ad2 cause you can lose the stock pump or the pump on ad2 so doesn't matte either way. did you take out the factory filters or leave them in with running the 150

I still run both OEM filters after the air dog. Still change them all at normal intervals. The OEM filters still aren't really dirty even after 12-15k, but I still run them for peace of mind. I like clean fuel.
