So. Most people use 12 compressors instead ov engine driven or nitrogen. I just got a new alternator with 200 amps. So lack of power is not a problem. I'm curently using 2 Thomas comp. Into a 5 gallon tank, and I have the nitrogen in case i have to show off a little bit. So what do you think is better. Buying 4 more thomas compressors or get 2 good viar or one big one?????? :uh:

Get more than 5 gallons of air.. Your compressors are basically refilling your bags, not your tank.

If you have a nitrogen bottle you wont really need a larger air tank because the bottle will refill the air tank in no time. Keep the compressors you have already got and use them for everyday use, when you don't need the tank to refill quickly.

An engine-driven York compressor is the best option, if you have room for one. Failing that a single Oasis compressor will out-perform 10 small Thomas compressors, will be cheaper and will take up less space.

So why spend that much when a york is around 200 and uses up a hell of lot less amps, does it perform better, is it the space that not everyone has?

Actuali is the fabrication that is involved in putting a york in place. I've never seen it done in a civic. Thats why I don't wanna spend $200 and not be able to instal that shit :(
