HPOP choices... t500 vs adrenaline mostly

Those two are close enough in claims and price.

I realize there is the SPR 1.1, that's more than I want to spend.

And the honey badger jr. from Dynoproven, which is just too damn new for me to want to be a Guinea pig.

Both T500 and the Adrenaline say they'll have no problem with the 238's I'll be running. Is there any reason to pick one over the other?

I think if I was buying right now, I'd be tempted to get a Honey Badger Jr mainly based off of Dyno Proven's track record so far.
I bought my Adrenaline right before the HBJ came out and have no regrets. Does what it's supposed to. I read till my eyes hurt on what HPOP to get, and I got the Adrenaline mainly because I just couldn't find failures. That was big for me cause I put 50k miles per year on my truck on average. So reliability was at the top of the list for me.

I have no experience with the T500. I've had no problems with the Adrenaline.

Ive had my T-500 in for 50k miles now and Im running 225/100s with a very aggressively tuned truck and love how it performs, never falls off for pressure, duty cycle never goes over 45% and Ive seen pressures over 3k many times. Ive also seen an ADR run 300/200s with the same aggressive tuning and not fall off either, duty cycle was a bit higher and pressures a little lower than my 225s but the truck runs great. Either one gets my vote as they are both a great drop in single pump and will both support a 238 with no problems.

Honey Badger without a doubt... I've got over 10k on mine in just 3 months or less. Performs flawlessly.

Upgradable, fully warrantied and from one of the best company's out there.

I'm not considering the Honey Badger Jr. Solely because its only been around since October. Both the T500 and adrenaline have years of happy customers

Thats fine, its honesty your loss...

The Honey Badger has proven to out perform the T-500. Its upgradeable, and it has a lifetime warranty.

Call them and talk to them, no reason not to...

I'm not buying a product that is so new, I have almost 0 interest in it. IMO it hasn't been proven. If its still around in a couple years and I'm building another 7.3 then maybe


I don't see the sense in going for the HPOP that doesn't have the track record to back it up, especially when I won't be taxing the other two availble ones too hard with the injectors I'll be running anyway.

Especially once you convert to CAD. Its 300$ more than the T500

We always use DieselSite's Adrenaline pump when doing in house installs.

I have heard good and bad reviews out of every pump on the market. What is the deciding factor for me would be what company I trust the most to stand behind their product to fix an issue of one arises. Bob and the DieselSite team have always been top notch for us.

Thanks Jay. I'm going to try and dig into seeing what's actually done to both pumps.
