my g/f's bro just put some air cylinders on his Sebring? He has (2) 3-gallon tanks in the back. His current compressor is having trouble keeping these filled. What compressor would you suggest with this setup?

Sorry I dont more spec as far as what he currently has right now.


Thanks,
Cizko

and as long as you have 3 batteries and a 160 amp alternator to keep up with them, the oasis is a great compressor..

but for a real world set-up, run a pair of DC7000 Blowjax compressors!

with 2-3gallon tank you should only need 1 Viair 450. Don't get the easy street, get the actual Viair. I ran a 10 gallon system on one @ 160 psi. I just upgraded to 2 450's, no problems. with a total of six gallons you will have no problems with 1 450. You don't need to spend big money on a blowjack 3/4. Plus they are to loud and annoying when they are running

Don't get the easy street, get the actual Viair.  I ran  a 10 gallon system on one @ 160 psi.  I just upgraded to 2 450's, no problems.  with a total of six gallons you will have no problems with 1 450.  You don't need to spend big money on a blowjack 3/4.  Plus they are to loud and annoying when they are running

does anyone have any knowlegde on this site. Yes Viair is easy street..but easy street buy's the compressors from viair and takes off the stock cover sleeve(aluminium)......they put on a chome sleeve. Do you know what chrome will do on a motor like that? I didn't think so........if you chrome a altenator it will not allow the heat to extract as fast and as much. So think what it will do on a compressor running for period of time @ 150psi... possible thermol pertection or burn out the brushes inside the motor.......that it why I said Viair.....not Easy street.[/b][/quote]
you dumb fuck coming on here as a newbie and saying we don't know anything. I have a 450 from easy street and sorry dumbass, i don't think a cheaply chromed sleeve is going to do much harm, you might as well go saying that everyone that has chrome motors on juice should get rid of them because they don't last as long. Sayin I don't know the effects of heat transfer. Do you know what I do for a livin', I think not. I know more about metal working and the effects of heat on different metals than you will ever know. Go spend your time on another site if you are going run you mouth only having 5 posts.

Hey, what would you guy's say if I told you that you could run a constant 350 to 500psi with one single compressor and no Nitrogen or anything as such.

Using any of these compressors:
[*]Thomas/Firestone 1/5HP
[*]Viair 350C 100% Duty
[*]Viair 450C 100% Duty

Let me add... No nitrogen or any engine driven compressors.

Did I get anyones attention?
