AirDog 150

Was looking to pick up an AirDog 150 for my truck. Not so much for performance or anything but mainly for a preventative measure. Is 150 the right model to get for a truck that would just be running intake, exhaust and tunes like Hot dam or the spartan 310? Is it a pretty easy install without modifying anything? Also heard that some people have problems when you are down to a 1/4 tank? Is that true on these 6.4's?

Ummm...there's no pump on that one, which largely explains the price difference between it and the AirDog. Extra filtration is good, but without a pump to push the fuel through it you could end up with low FRP and starvation...which is bad...

Just installed one in my buddy's '08 Job 1 F350 this past week. It's PLENTY for those tunes and then some, and the only issue with running below a 1/4 tank is IF you drill your tank and install their draw straw which you do NOT need to do. AirDog's instructions are horrific and they're technical assistance was of no help. The 150 installs differently than all of the other models (100, 165 and 200GPH) for some unknown reason. I have a 165GPH/10PSI AirDog2 on order for my '10 F250. It's a mandatory modification for keeping your fuel super clean and your motor happy...

Excluding the 150, how easy are they to install. Plug and play or cutting and spicing lines. Can I do it in my driveway in a few hours?
Thanks

Yes, the kits are 6.4 specific so the mounting bracket is made for our trucks as are the line connections. They include barbed hose connectors since the lines are set up for the longest line runs possible like you'd do on a CC/LB, the lines would be quite a bit shorter on a SC/LB, so you just splice them, install the connectors and you're good to go.

Anyone who tells you that they didn't either drop the tank or lift the bed is full of it. You HAVE to do one or the other. The bed on my buddy's truck was being far from cooperative, so we lowered the tank a bit (without completely dropping/removing it), so make sure you don't have a lot of fuel sloshing around in there when you lower the tank so it's easier to handle. The wiring is plug and play and very straightforward so no worries there...

I'm not exactly buying some of these 1 1/2 hour install stories I've read about installing it either, give yourself a full day to get it done and be happy when you get it done in the half the time and get some wheel time to enjoy the fruits of your labor.

Good luck!
