I heard they suck for kits.

Best bet is to buy a little of everything from different companies..

ie: the best compressor from whoever is the best and so on and so fourth

Good Luck

Buy the guy's battery...get the other stuff elsewhere. :)

Not sure who the absolute best cylinders are, but EAI sells cylinders, and I don't think I've heard bad stuff about them. Run 2 Viar 450 compressors, and Parker air valves. The switch box wouldn't be a bad thing to buy, I don't guess, and if the 1/2 inch line isn't cut up for that guy's car, the line would be fine, too. I'm just not big on AIM. Anybody who has around 5 different corporation names to attempt to sell their products without people knowing it's from AIM has issues.

I definately wouldn't reccomend AIM valves at all. Everyone i know that has had them has had them fail. The seals on the cylinders go out a lot too. my buddy had a set on his civic and blew out 2 seals running 120 psi.... compressor, battery, and switches should be good tho. i'd scoop them up for sure... just get parker valves and some nice cylinders... my 0.02

I insall and sell blowjax (aim,chassis tech) stuff and 1/4 of my business is selling stuff to people who bought other branded stuff and had it crapp out or got ripped off$$$$!. The cheap "gold" 2 pos valves are fairly nasty but the high pressure ones arnt too bad. They are going to stop selling them all togeter soon as they have the direct acting valves that absolutly kick ass. The low pressure aplo 3pos valves were shit but only a couple of dollars more get you the 250psi 3 position for tucks and these are very reliable and still cheap. Remember if you buy the cheapest of cheap stuff you cant expect it to be the best. The blowjax 3/4-1/2 hp comps are the goods, the 1/4hp will only get you A to B.

i LOVE THE AIM cYLINDER KITS. We have installed many of them with only 2 or three problems. Just don't use their valves. The only problem with the cylinders I have even encountered is a broken rod casue the fool was haulin ass and hit a speed bump locked up and a bad seal in a 3 yr old rod.
