Alternative to Airdog/Fass

Hi, I am a 17 year old and I just bought my first diesel - 2003 sierra LB7 with 180k miles. Its in amazing condition and I'm looking to do some upgrades to it. I've been looking at the Airdog 100gph lift pump, but after reading some other threads, someone mentioned the "Duramax Dual Fuel Filter"

Duramax Fuel Filter Kit

I was wondering if anyone can offer advice on this kit or any reviews/experience. Again, Im brand new to the diesel world and know the importance of a lift pump. Just thought this one looked good, quality and price wise.

Thanks!

Donít do it.


There is a thread on here about doing your own lift pump for about $50 dollars. Then youíll know how it works. For about $150 you can put on an additional filter. Let your lift pump suck fuel through a water separator filter first, then push the fuel through a secondary filter, then on to the filter on your engine.

Compare all the products and install and what your getting for your money hoses are used not metal 90ís and the price isn't all that great for IMO a Mickey mouse set-up.
All you need is a AirDog 4g100 or FASS 95 nothing bigger or even Kennedy all three outshine and are proven liftpumps compared the kit your really wanting to pull the trigger on.

do a search for Kennedy Lift pumps in here, i have one on each of my dmax's.
he uses a centrifuge pump, the downfall of fass/airdog is that with a constant abundance of flow to the engine all the time means that you are generating air on the return to the tank. check out his website too

See, right away someone has to talk bad about anything other than Kennedy, when they don't know any better on how they function.
Get the facts first, but this is typical with Kennedy LP owners, only buy/use what I've bought.
All 3 are good quality LP's

Your over exaggerating on how AirDog and FASS functions.
There is NOT a constant flow to the ENGINE, only to the liftpump, what's not used by the engines demand (lead foot) returns back to the tank via return line from the liftpump.
The ONLY time you'll have air in the return line is when a customer falls for buying the larger LP's 150, 165 with a faster flow (larger 3,000rpm motor), not needed unless your planning on having 600 plus HP.

I went from a FP-100 (first model) to a 4G165 (warranty) having this Niagara falls return with air bubbles you mentioned then back to a 4G100 (new model 2,000 rpm motor) nothing but fuel returning with no air in the fuel viewing inside the fuel fill neck.
I would prefer to have fuel readily available to the engine with the push of my lead foot.

Oh, did I mention you have a lifetime warranty on AirDog and FASS motors.
mray and SilverGorillaLML like this.
