brokin in 3 1/2 are the way to go, and are you running all 8 batteries? you might want to if your not to compress those jammers homie, and if you have a 3/8 port block stick with a competition 3/8 parker check valve to keep your pressure even, but if you don,t have one run your 1/2 checker, are you running the numer 8 hose or the 6 I forgot what the call it in, wait there,s 3/8 and then the smaller 1/4 right?
let me know how that comes out or post some pictures of that car when you get it going the way you want, thanks

yea i already hopping it. i jus learning how to hit the switch jus right. i am running all 8 batts. i have a1/2 parker check. all i know is that is the hose size is 3/8. i got my hoime film my car hopping but still learning how to hit it. i post the vid once my hoime post it to me. i figured some 3 tons with 4 of 4 1/2 turns would work better.

4 tons should work good i think, i would say your best upgrade would be to get a 3/4" block, check, and then a 3/4" to dual 1/2" y block, then run your 3/8 hoses(#6) to the nose.

and maybe get a marz #9 gear.

a few things i would suggest would be 4 1/2 ton precompressed coils MBQ's since u have a v-8 motor u definately got some weight up front. and im praying the front end is reinforced or think about gettin another car soon lol. u could do the uppers 1.5 inches to 2 inches if u like. i dont think dropping down to 3 tons would be the way to go since u got a v 8 in there and hopefully some reinforcement those coils would bottom out around 30 inches give or take a few unless u run a mini coil inside.
