AirDogII with fuel bowl delete??

i would really like to remove the stock fuel bowl and regulating system, i am using the airdogII that uses the stock lines and stock return system. i asked the guy at AirDog if i could do this and they said that i would have to run a regulated return system.. whats the deal with that? why have a built in regulater in the pump if you have to have another one at the engine? what are you experences with this? thanks

You need something at the high point in the system to allow any air to escape that get into the lines when changing filters. Otherwise there is nowhere for the air to go except through the injectors and we know that is not a good idea.

If your cocern is maintenance of the filter in the fuel bowl the fuel is filtered to 2 microns before it ever gets there so there is really no need to change it for regular maintenance. Or if you don't want the restriction of another filter in the line you can just take the filter out and remove the standpipe from the bowl. Then you will never have to crack the cap again. That is what I did with my setup. I considered fabbing a delete but in reality it isn't worth the time and expense.
