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?

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.

it wont give you any power gain what so ever! all it will do is keep injectors happy and filter better. thats all they are designed to do.

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