Build advice

Hey guys I'm starting a build for a buddy this week and just looking to get some advice on everything. Just wanna make sure it sounds like a good set up and I'm not forgetting anything. Here's what I got so far. ARP studs, OEM gaskets, oil cooler, warren 175/75 injectors with drivin diesel RR. Should regulated return be enough to support these injectors? MTW Madmax turbo, standpipes and dummy plugs. Egr is already deleted. HD up-pipes, FICM rebuild with either atlas 40 or 80 tune along with gear head tunes, sinister coolant filter, and that's all I remember for now. Gonna have an extra grand to play with so should I go for banks technicooler kit, ported and polished intake, or what? Love to hear from the pros. Thanks guys.

175/75 and RR will depend on the health of the HFCM and tune PW used. A full fuel PW tune might starve the injectors to support the fuel volume and psi needed to support 175/75 if the HFCM is weak.

OK so what would you recommend to prevent starving? Maybe a dumb question but everybody says fass and airdog have a lot of failures so I'm not sure what to use.

It's the Airdog II units that people are having issues with, the "standard" Airdogs have a good reputation. You could also put a 6.4 fuel pump between the tank and the stock 6.0 pump. People are having good luck with this when you add a sump as well. For the extra $1,000 I'd suggest putting if toward an intake manifold.

So can the original airdog still be purchased or have they been replaced with the airdog 2?

Yes, original AirDog and others will work as a feeder pump only. These pump are low psi pumps (about 10 psi) high volume. You would use this style pump to feed the stock HFCM.


The 6.0 requires a high psi high volume pump (50+ psi) to supply the injectors.
