The difference it makes is changing fuel filters and keeping the hpfp a little more happy but as far as power difference there wont be one. I think it even filters better than factory specs.

Better filtration is the biggest reason to install an aftermarket system. Just going to say that 3 out of the last 5 Air Dog systems that I have installed have lost the motor in the pump within 10,000 miles.
I will be installing FASS inless the customer would rather the Air Dog.

Just my 02 cents

Airdog2?

I have an airdog, works great now. Biggest reason as stated above is filtration followed closely by more fuel pressure to the rest of the system (ie your engine doesn't starve for fuel).

Btw miles, when your pumps failed what happened? Just failed to start or something more catastrophic?

Subscribed....I would like to know too. I was going to order my Air Dog today. I ran a FASS on my Dodge and loved it....However, eveyone seems to like the AD on the 6.4?

Most people prefer the Air Dog over the FASS because of size and noise. The filters are much smaller and pump is much quieter with the Air Dog.

Are there any benefits to replacing the LPFP with an Airdog?

The failures are on high pressure systems. On the 6.4 the airdog is a low pressure system and i have not heard of any problems on the 6.4. The 6.0 guys are the ones having problems with the airdogs.

One was on a 6.4 and the other two have been on Duramax. On all of them the motor that drives the pump goes bad and blows the fuse. Replace the motor and it work fine.(for awhile)

Hot running motor is ONE issue. Shaft seal is another issue.
