no its really not worth it at the moment. if anything do the blue spring and 6.4 bolts if you want to help your injectors out. wait on the airdog till you have injectors. i made that mistake on buying it because i thought my pump was going out. turned out it was a small white peice at the top of the regulator on the fuel bowl that wasnt installed back. so i now have an airdog but dont have it on my new truck because i dont need it at the moment. but i will be doing injectors soon so thats why i kept it

Do you have a fuel pressure gauge? That's where you'll need to start.

Mine fluctuates too much for me, so I'm gonna get a AirDog 150 and an RR, along with a sump.

An AirDog is WELL worth the price and effort to install. In fact it's not too hard to install at all.

For me the injector noise dropped with the removal of air, add the extra fuel/water filtering and it's a no brainer. For the cost of injectors keeping them healthy is key. An AirDog will do the job!!

So should I start with banjo bolts and the blue spring? And do you know if they make a pillar mount for the cs with a regular guage holes. So I could ditch my dash pod and have fuel and cts on my pillar? I don't really want a steeri g Collin fuel guage

ive got a single gauge pod i could sell you and you could mount a fuel pressure gauge in that. and a airdogII and a RR is hard to get the pressure set right. i know how to do it but keeping everything at the right pressure can get tricky

Is the 150 more reliable than the 165?? I'm at the point where I need an aftermarket pump, but do not want to compromise reliability.

An airdog II 165 is just as reliable as a 150 version. Now just so everyone is on the same page, there is an airdog I and an airdog II and both have different models of each that came with different flowing capabilities. The main difference to point out between the two is that the Airdog II has an adjustable regulator and is designed to replace the stock pump. Where as the Airdog I was designed as a lift pump to feed the stock pump to remove air from the fuel and lessen the strain on the stock pump.

Using an Airdog II with a RR kit is very simple to do so long as you have a fuel gauge. You simply turn the regulator on the pump to as high as it will go, which will be higher than you need to run your injectors and then adjust the regulator on the RR kit to the desired pressure and bam your done.

I personally would run an Airdog II with a RR kit and a sump. I think that would be the most reliable way to do it but that is just my opinion. hope this helps.
