Question Do I need an Airdog 11 165 for reliability?

I am interested in long-term reliability and the biggest tune I use is H&S mild.. am not interested in making big hp. Will the Airdog really filter water better than the stock rail filter. What are your thoughts about adding the Airdog before the stock rail filter.. any real benefit to this?

Thanks

The filtering and water separation makes them worth it. The stock separator sucks in my opinion. I would do the Air Dog II since it deletes the stock setup.

Why does the stock separator "suck"? Do you have any real numbers to support the Airdog? How do you know it separates water better than stock?

imho. the stock setup doesn't filter well enough, I just replaced my injector pump, and i'm thinkin main cause was containation, They didn't say it but I bought bad diesel somewhere and it wasn't the same since, For piece of mind i'm doing it. just my 2 cents

I thought for reliability you avoided the AirDog stuff LOL

the OEM should be drained more frequently than the filter change interval IMHO and if you had two much water from a bad fill up it should have set the WIF light? and the new filter design is supposed to not bypass when clogged like the previous

I personally would do a racor separator filter if I were worried about water and the ability of the OEM ..

but that wouldn't give you the air separation benefit that is My 2 cents


Quote:
6.0L and 6.4L diesel engine fuel filters are up to 98% efficient at four microns or larger
Water removal efficiency is 96% or better( not including the water separation of the housing itself I would bet )
Aquabloc technology in 6.0L and 6.4L diesel engine fuel filters ensures separation of water from fuel
