fuel system

When I buy my Air Dog can I just remove my fuel bowl and put in a "Y" off the main fuel line?

You would need the AirDog II that has the built in regulator. Set it to 60+ PSI for best results. Adjust as desired for best performance.

I am going to get an Air Dog 2. 190cc injectors and a modded 68mm power max should be good for 600hp from what I was told. I was also told I can tow my 4-5k lbs lawn trailer. We will see how that works out.

I would suggest staying away from such a large wheel VGT turbo. They typically dont hold up well because they are prone to surging which causes the bearings to fail. I would just stick with a powermax and add a batmowheel and call it a day.

The powermax with 190's yielded a 35whp gain.. no torque numbers but from comparisons its seems like it falls the 150 tq gain.

Powermax = $1200
Batmowheel = $400

So for $1600 or so you have a BRAND NEW turbo that will last longer than a modded elite or RCD turbo, have no surging issues, and youll have basically stock like spool up


no brainer to me, you couldnt pay me to run a 68mm vgt from rcd or elite

That and you dont have a core charge with the powermax so you could rebuild your stocker and put a batmowheel in that also.....that way if the powermax takes a dump on you its posible to just switch them out same day and still run a modded turbo for the 190s

Yah, there is a good reason why a big name performance company that is three letters long starting with an "A" no longer makes a variable vane turbo setup anymore. Tell me more about this Batmowheel and where to get it or who sells the whole setup.
