One of my friends is thinkin about either getting the Raptor 150 or the AirDog 150. He doesn't know which one would be better or the pros and cons between the two. He has a 2003 Cummins. And info or opinions about this would be great. :thumbsup

Both will give you the fuel flow that you need. The AirDog will give you the 3 micron filtration that really helps the cause. It depends on your budget, if you have the extra green the airdog would be nice but if money is tight then go with the raptor. I have the FASS HPFP, the fass stand alone pump, with a caterpillar 2 micron fuel filter to give me a little more filtration.

I havent had any 1/4 tank issues. I always drain the tank before installing the draw straw that way when the fuel is used the bottom of the tank rises and will come right near the pickup.

the Airdog definately gives superior filtration and air seperation. the Raptor is great for replacing the problematic stock pumps on these trucks. the Airdog is definately the best bang for the buck!:thumbsup

If it is a 2003 just use the 100 GPH unit and pull through the stock tank pickup. The 100 GPH unit will support a very heavily modded CR. A 150 is not necessary for the majority of the users.

Right, but are you talking about using the AD or Raptor?
If you use the AD you'll need to plumb it's return line into your canister or you'll have problems down near ¼ tank...

... ask me how I know! :CRY:

The Raptor will still give you tons of fuel but will not drain your canister and you won't have to mess around with a return line. You WILL lose the extra filtration and air extraction though (if you believe all that stuff).

I'll be dropping the tank again and putting a draw straw into the canister for the AD return.

I have never had a problem with a 100GPH unit and low fuel unless they are used with a stand pipe.

with the crappy fuel we have now i would suggest the Airdog just for the added security, everyday i hear about people getting water in the fuel then the dealer voiding their warranty b/c of contaminated fuel. not to mention most people pick up another 1-3 mpg w/ it as well.

Did you use the factory canister, factory supply?
Do you have a fuel pressure gauge?

I have a 2004.5 dodge and I just ordered the air dog 150, industrial injection 150 gph cp3, and 50hp industrial injectors. The question is. With the AD can I bypass stock fuel filter? Or is that not a good idea?

Most people (including me) DO bypass the stock filter and take the ½" hose right to the CP3.

Thanx for the info. The reason I asked, is that I read somewhere the AD filters extends the life of stock filter. But if I can bypass and create less resistance, all the better.

Yes, it will help the truck by providing a steady flow of fuel and eliminating air and water from plus you get a lifetime warranty to boot.
