I purchased the " Cool Ride" air bag kit from Air Ride Technologies. The kit works great except the rise and dump is way to slow. Is anyone running Firestone bags with 3/8 npt and have a fast rise and dump. Here is how my setup is now....

66 Super Sport

So I need some input from guys who have fast bags. What setups are you running? Thanks......

Thanks for the reply Da Frog. That was with a 3 gallon tank. I have a 12 gallon now. The 12 gallon is quicker but limited by my slow valves and 1/4 line. I installed everthing my self. Install is as good as it gets. I just did not do enough research before I purchased my setup. What I need to find out is what valves will give my the best flow. I am only running 150 max psi. I need to find out if my Firestone bags can handle more.

And suggestions on 1/2 vavles.... With 200 psi, 1/2 lines and faster valves I should be close to what I want......

So give me some input on what type of bags, valves, psi and line size you guys are running to get fast rise and dump? Again, I have Firestone single port bags with 1/4 air line. I am thinking just switch to 1/2 line and a really good fast 1/2 valve setup. With my 12 gallon tank and 200 psi , that should do it?
