Regulated Return or Airdog 2??

So im getting everything together to do the studs on my truck and I wanna do a fuel system while the truck is apart. Im looking at Elite's stage 1 RR or an airdog 2. Any suggestion on which one to go with? Im also going to order a Garrett powermax turbo and eventually some 155cc injectors but that is the biggest sticks I will run since I tow pretty heavy. So what do ya'll recommend??

Re: Regulated Return or Airdog 2??

If I had to choose one or the other........ Ide go with the AD II. Those 155s aint going to fail because you dont have a RR. Run low on fuel pressure and see what happens though. JMO. Good luck with it.

Ya i was thinking the AD II would be plenty for my setup since im not going to be running a big set of sticks. My truck is pretty much a weekend driver and a tow rig for camping so I would hope the AD II would support the 155's

Just the AD will do all you need with the 155's.

Re: Regulated Return or Airdog 2??

The AD II has a regulated return that runs back to the tank. The ADII will definitely help way more than the RR with your injectors. I don't know what size injectors they are, but elite recommends their rr system up to a stage 2 injector.

Not to Derail the OPs thread, but would you need a RR with an airdog 2 and say 175 sticks?

Re: Regulated Return or Airdog 2??

The airdog 2 already returns fuel to the tank. IMHO if your gonna go over stock sticks, you need a fuel pump like the AD or FASS to keep your injectors happy. The best system would be a RR with the ADII.

Re: Regulated Return or Airdog 2??

cant the fuel only be regulated at the regulator set to the lower pressure? if you had a regulated pump set to 55 psi and a regulator set to 60 psi on the motor wouldnt the regulator on the motor never open? in my opinion all you need is a regulated pump, and drill out the banjo bolts or get upgraded lines from the bowl to the heads and mabue a crossover line in the back.

Re: Regulated Return or Airdog 2??

I would NOT drill out the banjo bolts. Buy oversize lines and fittings, but I have heard of several breaking in the heads, and that is a nightmare.
