Airdog 2 vs FASS

I know this topic has been covered a few times but I still can't figure out which ones the best.

Everybody loves both of them. And then some people say that they are terrible wether it be the installation or the longevity or the customer service or the pumps not being able to supply 60-70psi as required. And then when it does hold the pressure the pump takes a chit cause its working to hard.

I guess what I'm trying to figure out is which of the two is less maintenance I guess you could say.

Any and all input is appreciated.

What I know of FASS, and all I know is from what I've read here, is that they have just atrocious Customer Service... They don't seem to care about you once you've made your purchase and will use any excuse to deny to warranty coverage if you need it (if you Do go with them, be sure to send your warranty card in right away, return receipt requested, and keep a copy of everything for your records)

Airdog 2 vs FASS

See that was my major draw back that i had with FASS. From all the research I have done. And I'm leaning more towards the airdog2 cuz they say its quieter and more compact. But it's a pain to get it all set up properly with no leaks and setting the pressure. That's why I'm trying to figure out which one is the best for longevity. Cuz every post I've seen has been "I just put mine on" or "I've had it on for 1000 miles". I'm wanna know what the people that have had them on for 50k miles still think about them and what kind of problems they had. Or the one thing I'd like to hear is "I always forget I have one cuz it never gives me a problem".

I've had my FASS setup on my 01 for about four years now. Mileage I would say 50,000 plus, dont know exact.

Never had any problems with my setup, the only complaint i have is its loud.

A freind of mine has a Air Dog setup on his Cummins. He got it about a year after I got my setup. I wouldnt say his is any quiter than mine but it has a less annoying tone. No issues W/ his setup either.

Other than the warranty card policy, return as fast as you can, I never had a problem with my Fass HPFP I had on my dodge and I had one crap out on me.

They warrantied it no hassles at all. I was even running my own filter set up at the time cause the old stock fass/ad filters are nothing to write home about and in my case (04.5 HPCR) was a step down from the factory filter.

If you go the AirDog route, upgrading the wiring harness is a must.

Honestly, I'd go with FuelLab's new setup.

I've never heard of fuellab. Is it like the airdog or FASS. What's so special about it? Do you got a link for it?

Similar to Areomotive, they make a lot of pump for racing applications. Lots of shops use them in their RR systems.
