Air Dog

So i just installed my air dog 150. Works great! Im curious as to why the stock fuel pump is kept in place. If the air dog is suppossed to push enough fuel for moderately modded trucks, wouldnt the stock pump still be a limiting factor? Confused......

Airdog only puts out like 5-8 PSI

Maybe. Depends on what injectors you run. Stage 3 or above? most likely. Look into a walbro GS392 (or something like that).

Correct. High volume, low pressure.

Airdog is high volume low pressure. As far as a pump, its just a pusher to the factory fuel pump. Its main benefit is the air/water separation from the fuel before it gets to your main pump and then your injectors. I don't know if the raptor pump, also made by pureflow tech. is for the 7.3L or not. I know that on my 6.0L, if I were to upgrade to say, a 190cc (stg 2) injector I would benefit from the raptor upgrade.

No stage 3's yet!!! Just stock. Now with that Walbro, will that be ok for stock injectors, with room to grow up later on?

A bit over kill for stockers. I believe the walbro will work OK for up to 250cc. But over that is a bit sketchy on reliable info.

Regulated return.

I would save up for forged rods before injectors.

So the ITP 7.3L "Standard" Regulated Return Kit and the adjustable regulator conversion are 2 different kits? Whats kind of rods did the 2002s come with?
