FASS

What gains or differences would i see if i put a FASS system on a stockish truck? Is it even worth doing or should i wait till injectors and turbo? I can get a good deal on one but if its not worth it ill pass on it

imo its not worth it unless your stock one is weak. but if its cheap enough its always a good supporting mod for bigger injectors.

It is not worth it. Plus I am not a big fan. A couple of my friends have them and they have had nothing but issues with them...

My FASS 150/180 was fine after we got it dialed in and the correct spring in it. I had Hybrid Stage 3's with .009 nozzles so I needed the extra help in the fuel department.

Is it right for you? Depends on where you are going with the truck. i.e. big injectors, big turbo, etc..

38r and big hybrids are down the line but not any time soon. I didnt know if it would make a difference or not on a stock truck Obviously not

I can't speak for the FASS but from what I've read, the AirDog is a good set up. I put it on my completly stock Ex for a couple of reasons, none of them being performance related. Of all the fluids to add an auxilary filter to, fuel seems like it could do the most damage if you get a bad batch. Plus you fill up more with fuel then oil & coolant so the possibilities of getting bad fuel is greater than all the other fluids. After installing the AirDog, the truck is alot more quiet than before. I wired the relay trigger to the stock fuel pump so when it's on, the lift pump is on as well. Here were my reasons for adding this to my truck.

1. Water Seperation

2. Extra filtration

3. Air Seperation (didn't know this was a problem until I did some reading)

4. The stock fuel pump is 12 feet from the tank & I figured the low pressure lift pump of the AirDog could take some of the strain off the stock pump.

The Airdog is a great setup but what do you use for a pump?

Just the stock pump. The AirDog supplies 10psi to the inlet of the stock pump. This saves the stocker from having to suck fuel from the tank which seems about 10 feet on an Ex.
