Question about fuel

Ok so im hoping u guys can help me....im putting a 12v in my 94..it has dual tanks and i bought an airdog for it. i was told the fuel goes from each tank to the diverter valve (switches front and rear tanks i believe) im curious as to wether or not i can flow enough fuel through the stock stuff. the airdog i was told hooks up after the diverter valve and up to my p pump which will be set at about 400 to 450 ccs of fuel if that helps anyone...so bottom line is that stock stuff gonna work or is there a larger setup? If i cant figure out how to make the switch work i will hafta setup something so i can manually switch it. Any help is greatly appreciated thanks guys

ive searched all over but couldnt find an answer and im guessing someone with a 500hp ford should need more fuel than a 500 hp cummins (im shooting for 500 hp on the cummins) but the ford in theory should need more fuel because it has 2 more cylinders..thats my thinking anyway? i dont know im stumped

the powerstroke may have more cylendars, but the size of the cylenders in the cummins makes up for the 2 not there. what all are people using for fuel in the cummins swaps? i always thought it would be drop in and go, since its oonly 3 wires to that motor anyway, a little fuel and you should be fine, just instead of going to fuel pump on the psd, you would go to the injection pump on the cummins

well its basically like going to e fuel on the rest of our trucks, so if the airdog is after the diverter and before the injection pump sounds like it should be fine, the tanks just flow to our fuel pumps ( our e fuel pumps) as it is.

i talked to someone directly at airdog and they were the ones that told me about this possibly being a problem flowing enough fuel from the tank to the airdog since it has to go through the diverter first
