Question AirDog 150

I am sitting on the fence as to whether or not to drop the $530 and get an airdog. I know it helps the cp3 out a lot and removes the air from the fuel, but are those the only benefits?

Does it improve, MPG, throttle response, or anything like that. I currently have all the mods in my signature and I generally drive my truck around on my 80HP tune. I do have a 100 tune that is there for my max, what are some opinions to get it or not to get it?

If anyone who runs an airdog will chime in I would appreciate it!

Get it. I cant really comment about MPGs but it makes the truck run a lot better. I've run several lift pumps and the AirDog blew me away.

Get the airdog. I got an AD2 165 and love it. Throttle respons is better, engine is more responsive.
The only thing I do is wait 2 seconds more before I crank the engine so it can build up some pressure.
Not needed, but it seems reasonable Besides that, only benefits.
No air, no vacuum (low rail pressure) and 2 filtration. Yes it is expensive. Other mods are too...
And a new set of injectors is even more expensive

MPG: Who cares, if it does, it is not significant. If you want great mileage, go by foot

Nice, installation is pretty straightforward.

you'll need fuel line disconnect tools. (you still need those for LB7 right?) < 20 bucks at an auto parts store.

Yes, I have the disconnect tools already.... I was also told I can use the factory 1/2in pickup tube. I did support an Indiana company Meyer Performace, I have had good experience from the past with them, plus I love the fact I get my stuff the next day since we are only >60 miles away.

I went with the 150..
