Well my POS "bd"/carter aftermarket fuel pump i just put on last year took a poop on me about an hour ago, i was wondering if the FASS or the Airdog are really worth $600. what exactly are the benefits and if i do get one what would be the best size? thanks in advance....


It really pissed me off beause i just got my new Valair DD clutch installed this weekend with my new 35" toyo MTs on 18" Driiv Offroads.....boy am i mad!

Witht eh airdog/fass installed underneath on the frame, would it possibly get hung up on anything when off road? i won't wheel mine much; i plan on buying a beater off road rig, but occasionally i might feel the need to get dirty in the ram!

Mine is slide all the way forewaed against the transfer case so the skid plate is guarding mine. There is noting to get hung up that way...:w:

just installed my airdog 100. nice kit and pump. comes with a 2 micron fuel filter! the 100 says it is good for 550hp so unless your planning more power then that the 100 will be good. and you wont have to drill your tank. plus should only cost 500$ well worth the coin$:thumbsup

do you absolutlety have to install and drill your tank for that draw straw with the airdog 150?

it looks pretty easy before that. i would also, probably only be alotted one day to do this. how long did it take you guys to install your airdog?

The only time you really need a draw straw is if you have the intank pump. If you don't then I wouldn't waste my time and money installing one. I've never seen a report from anyone who's installed one that they gained anything but a lighter wallet.

I can do a FASS install in about 3-4hrs assuming I don't have to drop the tank.

This mite sound like a dumb question but here goes...

how do you get the fuel to the fass? do you use your existing fuel lines and just cut into it?
I want to replace mine in the very near future but wondered how it works. i was thinking about hooking it up so it would come in line after the stock in tank pump, but i am worried that if the stock pump does fail ( i should say when) would the fuel still be able to travel up the lines without going in and removing the stock pump out of the tank. cuz if you can just splice into stock lines and not deal with the tank it would a pretty straight forward install correct? thanks for the help, hope i didnt jack your thread. -S

You could do that but you'd be really working the FASS pump to try and suck through the in-tank pump. Just put the draw straw in and do away with the in-tank pump altogether.

The AirDog 100 is all you need. It is the complete system with superior filtration to boot. I am not sure where this information is coming from on the 550 horsepower. I have seen that posted before. I have installed many AirDog 100s and have them on 750plus horsepower trucks with no issues. The only place anything bigger is needed is on a dual CP3 truck, or certain race P-pump applications. All VPs reguardless of horsepower are fine with an AirDog 100.

:agree2:

It rather easy and the entire pump and draw straw can be installed in a weekend...

The stock in tank LP or the stock pick up assembly are both junk. The flow is choked up in the tiny fuel line that they put inside them...
