Air dog II 165 Benefits?

Hey I've got an 07 6.0 with sct tuning, powermax turbo, and 135cc injectors along with a few other goodies. I bought this truck this past winter and when I got it it came with a brand new in the box air dog II 165 fuel pump and i have yet to put it on. I was wondering if anyone has had problems with these. On my 03 cummins I had a raptor lift pump (made by pure flow as well) and i couldn't run below a quarter tank of fuel or else it would suck air and stall my truck. I have been debating for a while now whether or not to put it on because I don't want this problem again so if anywhere has any insight I would appreciate it if you would let me know. Thanks in advance.

Well considering you are not the original owner, if you do install it and have problems it will cost you some money to get it fixed but at least the new one will be warrantied for you. From everything I have seen and heard about the AD2 like yours, you should install it according to the factory instructions but for the feed line to the pump, use a sump instead of a draw straw or the factory suction tube. This will help ease the strain on the pump and allow it to work more easily. Hope this helps.

If you still have the green warranty form in the AD box, you might want to contact Pureflow to see if they will honor the lifetime warranty. If there is no green warranty form, then you might be SOL for warranty.

I installed a AD2 165 back in January on my truck and I like it other than the fact of running a quarter tank or less it will surge if you hold it WOT. I can only assume its catching air pockets, but then again I'm still using the factory draw straw. Just wanted to confirm that it WILL still have quarter tank issues unless you use a sump. Now just to be clear, normal driving around town I have no problems under a quarter tank. It's only under WOT. I still suggest installing it since you got it already and it will help your injectors out a lot.

By all means if you install it (and I would recommend you do) install a sump in the tank to feed the pump when you do. It and your truck will be much happier.

I have an XDP sump that is in my garage waiting to be installed as soon as I burn up this tank of fuel (probably by next weekend because I dont drive my truck that much). I'll let you know how it works out.
