AirDog® provides the most effective technology designed
specifically for diesel pickups to remove water, particulates,
vapor and entrained air from diesel fuel. The AirDog® enhances
the fuel delivery to the Chevy Duramax with a commercial duty
system. The AirDog® eliminates the air in the fuel that
robs your engine of consistently greater performance and can
also cause permanent damage to your injectors. The AirDog®
also provides the fuel pressures and flows your diesel engine
needs to produce maximum power, any time, every time!
High Performance diesel engine demands higher fuel flows.
Yet, higher fuel flows increase the vacuum at the fuel pump
and agitation in the fuel tank. These factors generate additional
air/vapor in the fuel system preventing your engine from producing
maximum power and efficiency. Additionally, air/vapor can
cause galling and pitting of the injector barrel/plunger assembly
and also tip erosion.
physics behind AirDog® technology:
fuel contains varying degrees of entrained air in the form of
foam on the surface or suspended in the bulk fluid as tiny bubbles.
Additionally, fuel is driven into the fuel pump by atmospheric
pressure, which is usually only enough pressure flow to fill
the pump at idle speeds. Consequently, at higher operating RPM's
, the stock pump cavitates producing vapor.
vapor are compressible. The presence of air/vapor in the fuel
injector delays the pressure build-up. This delays the injection,
resulting in Retarded Injection Timing.
injection timing in a diesel, just like bad spark plugs in
a gasoline engine, causes lost power, poor fuel mileage, and
an increase in exhaust emissions. Retarded Injection Timing
caused by air/vapor is the primary source of the rough idle,
lost power, increased fuel consumption and excessive exhaust
emissions of the diesel engine.
in the injector can also cause permanent damage in the form
of galling and pitting of the barrel/plunger assembly and
vacuum feed fuel supply system does nothing to remove entrained
air from the fuel. In fact, it only makes things worse. As
the filter plugs with use, the already inadequate fuel flow
to the engine is further reduced, increasing cavitation and
retarding injection timing even more.
& Compact: Only 7"L X 10"T X 3.2"W
Piece Pump Body: Replaces the old 3 piece pump
design reducing the number of parts, unit size, and weight.
This results in a sleek, low profile pump assembly and eliminates
the need for leaky, messy gaskets!

pump do I need for my truck?
AirDog® and AirDog® II 100 units are recommended for
up to 500 horsepower.
150 and AirDog® II 165 units are recommended for horsepower
up to 800.
II 200 units are recommended for anything that exceeds 800
daily drive my truck and it is only 300 horsepower. Will running
an AirDog® 150 or AirDog® II 165 hurt anything?
No it will not hurt the pump. But it could cause you headaches
down the road. Running way too much fuel to an injection pump
that can't handle it can cause an increase in fuel pressure,
which on some trucks could cause damage to that injection
pump and possibly cause it to fail. Running a pump to fit
your horsepower is suggested and will help keep you away from
small potential issues.
is the difference between the AirDog® 100 and AirDog®
Physically there are not differences. The pumps are the exact
same size. The AirDog® 100 motor is a 2000 r.p.m. motor
and the AirDog® 150 motor is a 3000 r.p.m. motor. The
differences between the two are as described. The AirDog®
100 is a 100 g.p.h. pump. The AirDog® 150 is a 150 g.p.h.
pump. Depending on the application, the installation kits
will differ as well.
have a Ford truck that I have put a Cummins engine in. What
kit do I need?
With all unique truck builds. It is possible to need a miscellaneous
part or two. When picking one of our products to fit your
truck. You will need to get the kit that fits the engine for
what you are running. Example: 2005 Ford with a Cummins out
of a 2001 Dodge. You will need a kit for a 2001 Dodge.
