Which fuel pump setup will be more reliable?

My stock HFCM pump is on the fritz.
I have another one in hand.

I have been thinking about playing with a custom fuel system.
But then thinking again, do I really need it?

I plan to have a regulated return, whether I build it or buy.
I have a fuel tank sump in hand already.

Would I be better off with a sump, Racor filter, to OEM pump,

OR

a sump & Airdog 2?

I never plan to upgrade to bigger injectors, or bigger turbo.
I dont want more horse power.
I just want more reliability.

I am leaning towards the OEM pump setup. And plus, I can carry an extra pump with me, and change it fairly easily on the side of the road if needed.
I dont have the coin to keep an extra Airdog setup in my toolbox.

I have an Airdog II and been running it for about 2years with no problems.
My truck has a tuner, turbo and some other goodies.
My OEM pump was on the way out so I jumped to the Airdog for ease and cost of the filters $15-18 each, instead of $65-70
It is also a LOT better at filtering and getting any water out of the fuel.

Are you stationed in NH ?
