BROKEN Fuel bowl..airdog II or regulated return?

The other day I took my fuel bowl off to fix the drain valve leak but when taking it off, the housing is shattered where it is mounted through the hpop. My question is...for the price of a new fuel bowl ($450-500) I could get an aftermarket performance part which would work better. I read that you can delete the fuel bowl with the airdog but I also heard that you cant..I contacted Throughbred Diesel and they said you COULD delete the bowl, but Im still on the fence with it. What would be the best bang for the buck? Regulated return for the #8 cyl. or the airdog?


I guess I will be doing the hutch mod as well as the harpoon mod while im messing with the fuel system but any input would be greatly appreciated!

See if you can find a used fuel bowl. A lot of people will have one. If you do the Regulated return with a fuel bowl delete you will have to add a filter inline with the pump. The AD would eliminate that but there has been a lot of worry about the reliability of the AD pumps.

Just to clear things up, the AD is gonna require "custom" plumbing to turn it in your fuel bowl delete solution. By the time you get it all plumbed in, you'll have a regulated return.

I'd probably try to find a used bowl, or give somebody like Irate a call and buy his complete fuel system.

You may want to ask this dude doing a part out of his 7.3 if he'll sell you that fuel bowl. 2000 7.3 part out

I figured a lot of members would have them laying around if they have done a rr with fuel bowl delete.
