Airdog relay control lead

Directions say to insert the mini fuse tap into a spare fuse holder but I do not have one. Also says "OR" remove mini fuse tap and splice the relay lead to the OE fuel pump lead. Can anyone tell me which wire to splice into?

What year is your truck? For my 2006 it's Pink/Black for the Fuel pump relay, switched power.

Re: Airdog relay control lead

Its an 05. I assume I am splicing into the plug that is going into the OE Pump from the front of the truck?

Yes that sounds correct.

Re: Airdog relay control lead

Thanks for the info man. I wired it up today. I have not been able to plumb it yet as I need to waste some fuel so I can drop the tank. My brother in law wasn't willing to help me with half a tank.

You have any suggestions as to how to cap off the factory fuel supply line? I could cut the quick connect off and shove a screw in the line but would like to keep the quick connect in place if I ever have to put the factory line back on in an emergency.

Re: Airdog relay control lead

did you use a sump or connect the fuel line to the top?? if you used a sump you can use the quick connect fitting included with ur airdog kit and go buy a cap for it @ lowes or home depot. if you connected ur fuel lines at the top- ur gonna have suction issues under 1/4 tank of fuel, but you could take the quick connect fitting to a hardware store and make the same thing.. hope this helps!

Re: Airdog relay control lead

I got it all installed today. All seems fine. I did not go with a sump. I only had a couple of gallons in the tank when I installed it and didn't have any suction issues. I hope it stays that way. I ended up cutting the factory line and putting a screw in it to plug it. I will get a barbed coupling and keep it in the truck incase I ever need to put the stock fuel line back on.

Re: Airdog relay control lead

I bagged both ends of my supply line. Since they both get disconnected I just left them in place as is and used sandwich bags with zip ties.

Re: Airdog relay control lead

I have gone through two tanks of fuel with the Airdog150 installed without a sump. I even did some offroading yesterday with only about 2/3 tank. I was worried because I had alot of steep ups and downs. My fuel pressure gauge never moved off 62psi. If I was sucking in air would the gauge move?
