with 2 450's & 2 blowjacks,

i would be considering 2nd battery with an uprated split charging system..
Bearing in mind all compressors would start-up at the same time, unless you used some sort of time delay on each compressor.

hell, I ran a seperate battery with just 1 Blowjax..

I ran an 8 GA wire to from the main batt to the trunk, through a big solenoid, to charge the aux batt.

when the car was off, the batteries were isolated from each other, when it was on, the were connected..

Heres a pic of the battery holder i made

so it was a normal charging system, with a wire from battery to a remote battery switch, then to another battery.
and the battery switch was conected to the ignition?



and if that is it what amperage was the alternater i ran an extra battery in the trunk with an issolater but it sucked ass

its a 130 amp alternator

it worked fine for me... i used to run that battery down in about 20 minutes before I wired the alt to it..

and I just used a regular solenoid, like the ones you use with juice..
I bought a stinger 80A isolator, but never used it.

Dan just a question, I see how you have your water trap after your air filter, shouldnt it be after the leader hose?....doesnt the moisture get produced after it has been through the compresing stage?....we put ours after the leader hose at our shop, just curious...

my thoughts for what theyre worth.....

even if you have a filter mounted right on the tank, youre still gonna get condensation built up in the tank...

I ran last year with no type of dryer at all, I just bought an Aro coalescing filter though, because the York likes to move a little bit of oil, and once that shit gets in the tank, it starts to stink.. :(

The new filter should ake care of that, but the tank will still need drained periodically due to condensation.... so I put a 1/8" needle valve in the bottom port, all I have to o is crack it for a couple of seconds, and drain the water.. pretty painless..
