Hey fellas, I am getting to the point to start buying my airbag management stuff. I will be running Firestone 2600's all around. A credible source told me to get a pair of Viair 450 compressors, using 2 - 3-gallon tanks w/ 3 ports each. I am not an expert in air systems so please bare with me.

As many of you know, you don't hop bombs like you do with mini-trucks and impalas (well, I certainly don't). But I would like to get a nice smooth quick lift and smooth drop. I won't be doing it constantly but enough to show my bombita can slam.

So, would the pair of Viair 450's be adequate? Or this 480 model I have been reading about? Thanks...

you would be better off running i multiport 5 gal, and 2 480's the compressors would be an overkill but you would be happy with results.. your tank would fill up quick. you could actually get by with one 480 but 2 is always better.

Thanks. Are you referring to 1 (one) multiport 5-gal tank?

Where would you recommend I could purchase the pair of 480's? Thanks.

i was running 1 5gal multiport with 2 viar 450s and was not impressed at all. i would run nitrogen and the regulator will get it to go as fast or as slow as u want...and there will be constant pressure.

the only time you really want to run more than 5 gal if ur trying to hop ur car, 5 gallons is enuogh to get ur car up and down a few times.. especially on homies car i know hes not trying to be his car up, im sure he isnt looking to get off the ground, at least i wouldnt that car is too old and clean to beat up..

but if I am not going to be hopping 30 seconds straight, just here and there, wouldnt the 450's be suffice?

Also, is there a way to quiet down the hissing and psshhh pssshhh when lifting/lowering? Thanks fellas, this is helping

yeah if u barley hit the switch it'll be okay. but get used to compressors buzzing in your ear. and for the hissing they sell mufflers and adjustable silencers/slowdowns for the drop.

spending 570 bucks and having to wait that long viair blows fuckin balls trust me. go with a edc. no compressor is an overkill. you want air when you want air it pisses you off when you dont have it and some girl is like I wanna see.
