I won't touch them either. Nothing but problems and their customer service sucks.

If anyone has them MAKE SURE YOU SEND IN THE WARRANTY CARD!!!

Dale, discarding the delivered wiring harness and making your own 10 ga. harness seems to do the trick. Personally I am on my 3rd pump and am installing a 10 gauge harness and demoting it to a low pressure high volume pusher to a Fuelab 41402 high pressure pump.

How will that work if the Fuelab pump only runs @ 45 PSI or is it capable of more? Just curious.

What about AD100/150 that use a lift pump? Are those a pile of poo also?

Would a lift pump relieve the load on the AD2?

^^^This. Dale are you referring to AD2s (the ones that replace the OEM HFCM) or are the AD100/150s failing on you too??
