Aeromotive a1000

i'd make sure that you make a custom fuel filter setup as well (baldwin fuel and water separator)

Yea man I totally hear you. It sounds like from everything I've read, the Airdog II with a sump seems to statisically have the best success. Other than that it is a crap shoot. My stock one seems to be holding pretty good with my RR kit on it.

In all honesty, Aeromotive is a GREAT brand of fuel pump. Cant say how they are in the diesel world but they are the best IMO in the gasoline race world. I just wouldnt know how to plumb it with the right filter/water separator.

another system to dig into and really figure out it seems, kind of like building your own oil cooler system, nothing is simple anymore

i know of a handful people running big sticks with an a1000 with Zero issues holding 70psi... I think the airdogs and fass are hit or miss and its enough to steer me away. One thing i dont mind is a challenge, if you're all for the bolt on installation the airdog is a great option.

When I do my fuel system ill be adding a sump running all new fuel lines through a 2 micron filter and water separator to an a1000, and directly feeding the heads with a regulated return on the backside and a new return line, completely doing away with anything factory.

In all seriousness, I agree with all that has been said above and I want to look into the A1000 setup as well

I have several friends running Airdog & Airdog II on Dodges, Chevys and many Fords with no issues. I think the AirdogII is the best out of the box solution, now parting it together you might get a better option, but allot more coin. So it depends on how much you want tot shell out.

honestly building your own wont be that much more expensive. An Airdog II is $660 + the sump, sure its bolt on but like I said if you dont mind assembling things over the weekend building your own is more satisfying.

You may not even spend as much as an airdog if you play your cards right. I have my parts list all laid out and when i make the plunge it runs out to just south of $600 minus the sump

Thats for enough stainless braided line from tank and all the way back to the tank, all parker fittings, baldwin filter heads and filters, a1000 etc. no brainer if you ask me
