elite pump, injectors, and fuel needed....

Well I was about to bite the bullet on the elite 60hp injectors, moded pump, and fuel rails intil I discovered that elite says that a minimum of an airdog 165 is reqiured.....and I just got my brand new airdog 150 going....so heres my question and I feel that its probably a stupid one but do you guys think that my lift system will support those injectors and pump on a 300+ hp tune file??
not really into spending an additional 600 buck for an extra 15 gallons per hour... is there any gains to be had with just rails and injectors?

thanks

I hate to be the bearer of bad news but the airdog 165 wont even keep up with the 60hp injectors, elite pump, and rails.

I know first hand....youre going to have to go ahead and get the stage 2 fuel system from elite.

good luck

I don't know from personal experience yet, but i have heard that the problem is not that the airdog can't keep up, but that the fitting to the elite modded pump is very restrictive when used with the air dog and that is causing problems. This is what I have heard.

I'm about to be running the modded pump w/ stock injectors for the next year or so. Then hoping to do bigger and better things a little down the road when the cash boat comes in

If one could make the Air Dog pump directly in to the HPFP, it would work just fine. The problem is, the Air Dog II setups only pump to the fuel bowl.

Well now I wish I bought the "165" isn't there a way to delete the fuel bowl like on the 7.3 and 6.0?

Im going to be running a FASS 150/150 on mine but mines going right to the HPFP. I got rid of every stock fuel part on this truck other than the 2 fittings on the HPFP that feed each fuel rail.
I think if you plugged the fuel supply ports on the filter housing you could run a line off the Airdog to the HPFP. You could either find a banjo fitting to attatch to the fuel line from the airdog and attatch it to the HPFP or cut and flare the stock line after the fuel bowl and attatch your fuel line from the airdog. theres only 15 psi running through there.

Well I know that elite is listing the airdog 165 as a minimum but spatel23 says that it dint work for him....hey spatel did you have a bad expirience running the airdog?? not enough fuel?? I think for now im going to look to the air side of things for power atleast for now....seeing that my Egts can get over 1600 degrees by the end of the 1/4 mile. It may be time for turbos, intercooler and manifolds before I worry about injectors and melting the **** outa my pistons and topend
