truck mods in sig. i have a fuel gauge and it's not happy with the current stock system. what di i go with also i want the extra filter if i go with the fass. also do i need bigger lines, and do i have a pump in the tank if my lift pump is on the motor also. Tell me what you guys think i need if it were your truck. i am planning on stepping up the injectors, and adding a set of dragon flow 150's also.

if you have one on the motor there isnt one in the fuel tank... you will want a big fuel system like the Fass 150 or Airdog 150... both come with bigger fuel lines and everything you need to install them :peelout

Glaciers Fuel Boss is a nice system as well. It will increase pressure as the need increases with throttle.

airdog. after 3 LPS and crappy fuel pressure my votes fer the airdog. I did the 150 but either way you'll have rock solid fuel pressure and lifetime warranty.

BBRam,

I see your using the Eliminator from Wicked Diesel. I like the looks of the pump. Does it keep the stock filter in the system? Does it require 1/2" lines? Are there any tank or fuel canister modifications need with this system? I've been considering the AirDog 150 but I really don't want to take the bed /canopy off to install it.

Thanks in advance. Kevin :beer

It eliminates the factory fuel filter housing. It also comes with 1/2'' fuel line for the feed, 3/8'' line for the return. It also requires a draw straw, but dropping the tank for the install is no big deal. :thumbsup

AirDog 150 is your best bet, its better to do it once and do it right then to have to mess with the fuel system twice. Lifetime Warranty is a great thing also and their customer service is awesome.

Why drop the tank at all? I've seen stock canisters support over 600hp and when swapped out for a draw straw there was no difference in pressure or power so why waste the time and money for something that you could possibly screw up and have to worry about running out of fuel before your actually out of fuel? The FASS will work just fine with the stock pick up and will support anything you can throw at it.

What about the in tank pump?

It's not that hard to install a draw straw. And mine will pull fuel to the bottom of the tank.

The Fass, wouldnt support mine with a stock pickup at Under 600hp.

Not looking to start anything here, but these are facts from my experience. No BS here.

There are extinuating circumstances such as the intank pump. That I can see. But if you don't have it then IMO you don't need it. You are one of the very few who have actually noticed an improvement by running it and I'm wondering if there wasn't something else there that was causing your problem.

On a VP truck though you don't need to spend the money and the hassle on it unless you have an intake pump. Maybe on a wicked high hp 12v or CR you might need one but I'd say under 650-700hp you'd be doing just fine with the stocker.

Also, let's not forget that any pump is doing it's max gph at all times regardless of whether your at WOT or not, the pump is pushing everything it can constantly. So whether at idle or WOT your pulling say 150gph constantly.

Also, a LOT of people have had issues with not getting the hose cut right or the right length and run into running out of fuel at a 1/8-1/2 tank. That's an awfully big risk to be taking. Not to mention that the fuel sending unit on these trucks is kinda delicate anyways and can be broken very easily and I don't know about you but I don't like messing with delicate, expensive to replace parts unless I have to.

Not looking to start anything here either. Just facts from my experience and with talking to people.

I agree, there are many variations out there. And no, I am not saying the draw straw or big lines for that matter are a must. But if the in tank pump is present, than that needs to be addressed.
In my post for the member with the 2nd gen, I did not cross this path. In my response to the member with the 3rd gen that asked me a question pertaining to my system, I answered completely.

So with the airdog i gotta drop the tank is that correct. im looking for the easiest system. also when i do upgrade i bypass the factory filter canister or do i just take out the filter in the canister. also should i change the hose going from the tank to the pump and the hose going from the canister to the vp44. Thanks guys you've been great. I need to address this fast as at 1/2 throttle im a 0psi but at idle im at 12-14psi guess the injectors are thirstier than i thought.

The Fass HPFP and I assume Airdog has something similar, will plug into the factory fuel fitting at the tank (If there is no in tank pump that needs removed) It also has fuel line included from the pump to the oem fuel filter housing (which is still used)
