    Default 4 compressor 2 tank

    Ok correct me if im wrong, if you put 2 compressor for 5 gallon tank, you can use another 5 gallon tank with 2 compressor to have separate line 1 for front 1 for rear like hydro, i want to put that set up on the 69 impala of my friend because he want play lot of time before the tank go empty, and dont want to wait lot of time before the tank go full, my question are :
    1 : 2 compressor with one 5 gallon tank gona fill it faster ?
    2 : if i put 8 gallon tank it gonna be more air to play, but they will take more time to fill ?
    3 : what the best high output alternator ?

    An edc might be a better option

    Yeah. Edc will be way faster on refill time. Or go nitrogen if you got the money. Faster and just need tank and regulator.

    As far as alternators, look into singer and mech man alternators. They are high quality. High power and custom built. Comes with the price tag too.

    York 210 seems to be the most popular and most efficient. They do need to be filled with oil, then have a filter on the feed line to the tank to catch blow by oil. Sanden compressors need an oiler to be hooked to them. Just so your friend is aware, the 69 impala is a big heavy car, even with an edc, it takes lots of air to get the front end up, my 64 I can raise maybe twice and I'm refilling my air. I only have a 5 gallon tank, but it still sucks quite a bit of pressure to get it up. If they are looking into lots of play time, may want to look into nitrogen. Or something like that. Highly compressed air, get lots of play time, jus need to have ability to refill tank, airgas store or similar.

    I wouldn't go smaller then 4ga from battery to relay. I use the stinger 80 amp on my dual setup. No issues with it. I run a 100 amp circuit breaker off the battery power lead to relay. I would definitely recommend a higher output alternator, what make model and year vehicle?

    Thanks for answer, so i need 2 stinger 80amp relay and 2 100amp cicuit breaker to run 4 compressor if i follow your logic, correct me if i'm wrong, its for 69 impala convertible with a combo 350/350, i think go with 200amp alternator lmk if its good, and 55Ah blue top optima is a good stuff or maybe i need a bigger optima? And if you got pictures of your install it will be great.

    I may be mistaken, but isn't the blue top for marine use? I run a yellow top, it's made for high current draw applications such as the compressors or stereos. If you are planning on running multiple power wires then yes you would need multiple breakers. You could also run one large gage wire to a distribution block, utilizing a single larger circuit breaker. The breakers are nice, cuz you aren't carrying fuses, and if it trips, just let it cool and reset. I would definitely treat each bank of comps seperate and run a stinger for each pair. I'm no expert, just asked a lot of questions when I did 2013-08-07 16.36.27.jpgmy setup.

    Not sure on the rating of the yellow top. Been in there for a few years. Cars covered up still from winter storage. Yes. It is under the hood. Fit factory tray, I just fabbed up a hold down for the top, I don't have any pics of it, I'll try and get some tomorrow if the weather is nice. I wouldnt count on it though. Michigan weather sucks! Putting it in the trunk cleans up engine compartment for sure, either way you're running wire from engine to trunk. Whether from battery to trunk or from alternator to battery in the trunk. May not be a bad idea to run a second battery. Four comps will put a good draw on the system. Does he have the 4 comps already?

    Not already, i'm waiting him to order, i'm not a big expert on wiring thats wy i ask, for me the best is to put battery in trunk for clear the engine bay, and have short wire to go on the set up. Just need the info on gauge from trunk to engine bay i saw lot of stuff on the net but all different. Thats why maybe i gonna keep battery in engine bay, but here too i dont know what gauge i need.

    Anything 4 ga and larger is a plus on old rides. My original was like 12 ga, surprised the car didnt burn down. Lol. I would go at least 4ga from alt to battery, the larger wire size the better conductor of current. From battery to relay, no smaller then 4 ga.
