Are you looking for the valve lash specs? Like what to adjust your valve clearances too. Or are you looking for the seat angles and minimum and maximum width etc...

Intake lash spec is .010"
Exhaust lash spec is .020"

With engine at TDC adjust:
Intake 1,2,4
Exhaust 1,3,5

With engine at BDC adjust:
Intake 3,5,6
Exhaust 2,4,6

Intake seat angle is 30*
Exhaust seat angle is 45*

Minimum seat width is .059"
Maximum seat width is .071"

Hope this helps.

both fass and airdog only allow their distributers to sell their products for X ammout and if they get cought selling below that minimum then they lose their rights to sell either of them. so the best price for an airdog right now is 499 and thats the airdog 150 the 100 is the same(so why not get the bigger one) the raptors are cheaper but if you are spending that much on a pump already i figured i would just get the better one. and i wouldent go with fass because they are really loud and you can hear them in the cab with the motor running. the airdog is cheaper(about 200$) and it comes with 1/2" lines, and a draw straw and i can barly hear is when i turn the key on and i cant hear it at all when the motor is running. the fass comes with 3/8" lines and i dont think it comes with a straw.

and the fass is huge compared to the airdog. dimensonally the fass is a lot bigger.
