fass/airdog on an OBS?

Is anyone running a fass or airdog system? Is there a write-up anywhere or a complete kit that can be bought?

I don't know about a complete kit. I honestly wouldn't run either of them. I have close friends who have had both of them and had nothing but problems. Also, airdogs costomer service sucks. I am going to go with dual stock superduty pumps. Or maybe a couple walbros...

If your wanting e fuel, its really not bad to piece it together yourself. The peace of mind itself was worth it for me. Also with those kits the pumps aren't available at a parts store so if it goes bad, you have to wait on one in the mail.

I have to make 65 PSI @ ? GPH? Right? If I do it I dont want one hose clamp in the whole system. I have had really ****ty experiences with hose clamps and fuel under pressure...

fass and airdogs cant be used with 7.3's... they dont supply enough fuel pressure. Why the need for the fuel upgrade, btw?

Just bouncing some ideas around in my head. Thinking some stage II hybrids down the road and I'm gonna need more than the mechanical pump can handle correct?

Define "stage II hybrid"..... because stage II's are typically fine w/ stock fuel and a shim.

I am thinking anywhere between a budget stage II and a 2.5. My goal is 800+ ftlbs, not very concerned with HP (although it will obvioulsy follow torque probably somewhere in the 350-380 range).

What's this shim all about? I have heard it mentioned several other times and never followed up with it.

Bull s h i t.... will they "work" yes... are you damaging your injectors every time you step on the skinny peddle, YES, fuel pressure can NEVER drop below 50 psi to keep optimum injector life. filtered properly of course.... even if you shim the spring, if you dont have volume, whats the point???

here is a link to a few guys install of e-fuel with material lists. price is usually between 500 to 700 depending on how deep you go. once you decide what way we can link you to a good write up install if just one set up. but u need to decide how much you wana spend and what you wat to replace while doing it. and what kind of pump u wana run, stock SD (single or dual), walbro (not rated for diesel but lots of guys run them and only $100), bosch (needs 1/2 suction lines), aeromotive, or fuel lab.... all $$$ pending.

^ exactly. Injectors are too expensive to save a few hundred by running stock pump and filtration. Both leave a lot to be desired. Do you have a part number for the walbro? As long as you use hose rated for diesel AND fuel injection, and use fuel injection style clamps, you won't have a problem. If you still don't feel comfortable with that, you can run push-loc style hose or AN style hose, just make sure its rated for diesel, or it will not last. I used trident marine fuel injection hose.
