I won't run an AirDog II because of the wiring problems people are having. Sure it's a simple do it yourself fix with a wiring harness but for as much as the pumps cost...I shouldn't have to DIY it.
The setup I am going to run will have a sump, therefore I won't need the lift pump and I already have the two filters/water separators on my truck (having a combined 4 fuel filters), 2 factory and 2 aftermarket. Fuelab is an excellent pump and their regulators are top notch as well and I'm looking to trash can my entire fuel system. That's why I want that model, plus I need the pump with 10AN fittings and the 6AN return in order to accommodate my fuel system as necessary.
The fuelab pumps also have speed controls on them. One member on here is going to tie his pump into his TPS (throttle position sensor) so that when the pump receives a certain voltage, it goes to full speed, otherwise will run at a reduced speed extending life expectancy of the pump.
