What's your fuel pressure at? Do you hear the lift pump if you bump the starter?

If you run your VP dry, you will add the cost of a new one to your list. Expensive.
Where is your lift pump located? Is it still in the stock location on the engine block, in-tank, or on the frame rail by the tank.
You can run a hose into a bucket from the lift pump to see if you are flowing fuel.

Could be a blown fuse burnt up pump motor or a bad relay in the Air Dog wiring harness. It doesn't take very long to trash a vp44 pump running it without fuel pressure.

A fuse popping would either be a grounded out wire or and internal short in the fuel pump motor.

I had a very similar problem a couple months ago with my lift pump. There's an internal seal within the lift pump that had gone out between the motor and where the fuel flows that causes the pump to pull lots of power. Mine was blowing 40 amp fuses as fast as I could feed it. Is your pump under warranty?
