FASS 150 titanium or a fuel lab kit. I'd choose the FASS mostly for ease of install and there good. Fuel lab is better but more expensive, harder install, and isn't needed for his power level.

What if he was gonna put twins on it? Cause he's wantin to one day. Would that matter in his choice between the two?

Just stating 'EFI' means nothing in regards to judging adequate fuel supply needs.

go with the FASS Titanium. All the fuel pressure he will need, all the filtration he will need, easy install.... same could be said for the Air Dog as well

FASS 150 is my choice. Super easy to setup, less strain on the CP3, new models are quiet.

Kennedy is a good lift pump as well but I don't believe it gets air out of the system? Someone correct me if I'm wrong

Air leaks from worn supply line components with the negative pressure system is your largest contributor to aerated fuel feeding the CP3.

At the tank, when you pull your fuel thru the Primary 10µm-20µm FWS Filter 1st, to the Lift Pump, and then push the fuel thru the Secondary 4µm filter with positive pressure forward thru the final 4µm OEM filter, you've all but eliminated any aerated fuel feeding the CP3.

It's a long-life low pressure/high volume magnetically coupled centrifugal pump. There's no return or cycling fuel that could further aerate the in-tank fuel. Just a noiseless simple inline flow-thru design with no internal seals to wear.

Could I get more info on your setup? How'd you plumb it, and also how much did it all cost together?

I need to put a thread together on it.
It's not complicated. The pump kit is $375, plus a couple of $30 filter heads, some hose barbs and 1/2" fuel line. Remove the quick-connect flex line at the tank to tie in to the hard lines going forward.

they both will have their followers. I prefer FASS and have ran one for years on all my trucks and have not ran the kennedy, however, by buddy eventually switched to FASS cause he had issues. That is just him.

Did you only use one pump?
