and Performance! Two powerful reasons to add an AirDog®
to your diesel pickup! The AirDog® provides the proper pressure/flow
of fuel to your diesel engine under virtually all operating
conditions for PEAK EFFICIENCY with CONSISTENT and MAXIMUM POWER

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
daily drive my truck and it is only 300 horsepower.
Will running an AirDog® 150 or AirDog® II 165
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
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 difference 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

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.
compact AirDog® provides the most effective technology
designed specifically for diesel pickups to remove water,
particulates, vapor and entrained air from diesel fuel. The
AirDog® replaces the Cummins factory lift pump and filter
system, and enhances the fuel delivery to the Powerstroke
and Duramax with a commercial duty system.
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.
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!
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.
