Airdog 100?

I have a friend who is a diesel performance guy telling me that the airdog 100 will make night and day difference in the way my 6.0 runs. I have head studs, egr delete, oil cooler delete, 5" turbo back, and an sct running a dp 120 hp tune. I just dont see it making that much difference so who has one on here and is it worth the extra money?

I LOVE SMOKING HYBRID CARS.... my smoke is epa approved it says so on the back window

Probably the best mod i've done besides studs. My fuel mileage skyrocketed. I put in 190's and an A.D. 2 and am extremely happy. Definitely worth it imo.

I have not had mine long enough to see if I get any fuel mileage gains but it made a world of difference to quiet my engine down and idle A LOT quieter.

Im certainly in on the fuel mileage and quiet idle. He's claiming that it will make give it more power too but ive never saw one on a 6.0 so i thought sombody would know on here.

I put on an AD150 and it didn't make my truck quieter or give my better mileage.

Don't expect MPG miracles. I added the AD100 and it made the motor noticeably quieter. Do it to keep the injectors happy.

I'd suggest making it an AD150 with a fuel sump if larger injectors could ever be something you add later on down the line.

I know a lot of people say to get a sump with an AD150 but I never did. I've let my fuel gauge get down to where it says 17-20 miles till empty a few times.

My mileage went from 14/15 to 21+. I did the injectors at the same time. Sure it helped.
