Airdog 2 165 questions

whats up guys. just got an airdog for my truck. before i install it im just curious. my good friends from a diesel performance shop around here said that hes ran into issues running them on 6.4's. like they dont supply the pressure and such. so im wondering what kind of results yall got from them. if its not good then ill sell it and get head studs. im currently running a KEM 310, egr delete/intake elbow, exhaust, traction bars, and an intake. i seem to be running out of fuel on the top end. im getting a fuel pressure gauge soon so ill be able to watch it all. thanks guys!

What makes you think you're running out of fuel? Can you monitor rail pressure?

No issues here. Been running it for about 13k miles. Always maintains pressure and makes changing filters a breeze.

running a 150 here, with no issues (knocking on wood).. I'm diggin' the ease of filter swaps and improved separation and filtration..

on an aside: you DO NOT have to drop the tank to install that thing... I DID drop the tank, now, but during that lil' evolution I discovered you don't HAVE to.. stick your phone between the bed and the tank, (provided it has a camera) and snap a few pics- you can easily reach the basket if you reach in from the passenger side toward the rear, and feel for the quick releases.. clip-clip.. a few seconds later, you're running lines and mounting the pump... it will cut about three hours off your install time..

the factory pickup lines are the same inside diameter of the pickup line AD provides.. there is no better place to install the pickup than where OE is, as the shroud sits in a little depression in the very bottom of the tank... doing it this way will NOT give opportunity to obstruct the float (giving you false readings and making you run out of fuel), nor will it sit higher than the absolute bottom of the tank (also allowing you the opportunity to run out of fuel)..

edited to add: If I had to do it again, and regardless of what I shared above- I'd install a sump... and a valve cutoff to kill flow while changing filters..

one more edit: Installing AirDog 150 tips, because the instructions are annoying.. for pics of the basket from the top...

one of the main reasons to run an airdog is to maintain fuel supply and pressure at high horsepower levels.

now if they were saying the AD didnt supply a pressure gauge then that would be true.

hey guys
sorry for reviving a old thread but htf hard do you have to pull to get the fuel line from the outlet of the ford pump/filter off to conect the airdog. i have the same fittings as the tank for that conection i squeeze the blue tabs and i can twist and pull all i want and i cant get it to release, is there a tool i can buy to make this easier or is dropping the front drive shaft my only option to give me more/leverage to work
thanks

I haven't installed mine yet , but I'm doing the one that replaces the OEM pump and filter on the frame rail, and from what I under stand you just hook up the airdog set-up to the oem fuel lines. am I wrong on that. are there diff. installations for different air dog pumps?? I don't recall seeing anything about having to mess with the tank . But i'm usually wrong. Lol

I haven't looked under my truck but I am sure you need a fuel line removal tool. You should be able to get it from near about any parts house. All it is, is little round plastic piece that slides up the fuel line connection

Thinking about getting rid of the stock 6.7 turbo?
Check this out... and research before buying

Yes I'm doing the same thing but when I squeeze the little blue tabs I can pull and push and twist all I want and it won't come off. I think I'm going to have to drop the front drive shaft to give myself more room Or I think I found a tool that might work. Just wondering what everyone else has done, mine aren't the one that are in the instructions that need the little slide and twist tool.
