Airdog 2 vs FASS

Okay. I remember now. So which setup is best to solve that problem? And also when I go with the remote pump/filter setup. I can remove the fuel bowl correct. Is there anything special that I have todo for that. I don't have a problem doing all the work... It's just getting all the necessary parts that drives me crazy. Anybody got a complete parts list I can work off of?

In the stock 7.3 system fuel is returned at the fuel bowl. Many fuel systems delete the fuel bowl and run remote filtration systems. In a regulated return system that deletes the bowl ALL the fuel goes through the rails and then out back through an external regulator and then back to the tank. So in its very nature a RR kit takes care of the deadhead.

There are many kits out there and plenty of DIY write ups.

I don't love how this guy did it but gives a good parts list..

and here are the aforementioned pre-pump mods..

I appreciate all the help and I have decided to ditch the ad2 and go with a fuelab pump and a DIY filer setup with a RR, fuel bowl delete, hutch and harpoon mod and all that fun stuff. So I'm gonna be pretty much replacing the whole system. Just one more question. May be a ridiculous one. But I just wanna be sure. The existing fuel pump on the frame rail will no longer be needed when I go with the fuelab. Correct?

I appreciate all the help that was given. And when I do all this in April when it actually gets somewhat warmer I will be coming back for some more help. Hopefully not much but more or less for odds and ends. Thanks again!!

No you will not need the factory rail mounted pump anymore. Most fuel lab pumps flow 3-5 times as much as the factory pump.

That's what I was thinking. Thank you.
