Re: anyone using this???`airbagit.com vavle block?

I can tell You from personal experience that the products they put out ****ing suck donkey dick. I had problem after problem with they're manifold valve. If they weren't leaking they were sticking. I know the price is good and all but thats how they get You man...You would be much happier in the long run if You go with a more reputable company.

Asco is a great company. I met with their customer sales rep, the company has been in business for over 100 years, but they specialize in the industrial field, not so much the automotive, which is why they aren't as well known as SMC or the like.

Re: anyone using this???`airbagit.com vavle block?

blazed00 - I run the the 1/2" version of the valve block you posted. they call it the "air engine".

I previously had their 1/2" red spool valve manifold, it was a piece of shit during the winter, and it recently took a shit on me, and i upgraded to this one.

So far no problems, works 10x better than the other one i had, been running it for like 2 months now, through freezing weather etc. no problems what so ever.

They were selling them for $350, it was not advertised, you have to call them up, talk to Jon, or just PM him on here! His s/n is Juan@AirRideTech.

Re: anyone using this???`airbagit.com vavle block?

Here is the link, almost a year old but I know they were still doing it a month or so ago. Says theyre $400 but I thought they were going for $350, whatever, close enough.

Re: anyone using this???`airbagit.com vavle block?

either way it works and dosent use much fittings. I rather have a set of valves for each side instead of a block like you posted. Running the air line would be a little bit of a hassle id think. But both are good ideas in my opinon.. Mine just uses a few less fittings

agreed.

Im a big fan of valve manifolds, or custom manifolds people have rigged up.

Less fittings = less leaks, and having them all there together is so much easier to work on/service.

We have the Asco 8 station manifold in our shop truck, I have put 12,000 miles this year traveling to shows with not one problem.

Accuair also makes a great 3/8" manifold designed specifically for air ride suspension. You can also upgrade to their e-Level digital ride height leveling system for an amazing setup. They carry a limited lifetime warranty against leaks and/or failure.

I have used the EAI manifold setup and they have the gauge port on them like what you where after. Look them and see if you like them. If you want I can take a pic of the ones I got layin' around.

Re: anyone using this???`airbagit.com vavle block?

well you know the tundra is getting an air engine. but im keeping some spare funds incase i have to swap in an accuair manifold. the thing i like about the air engine i will be receiving is valve heaters are going to be installed.

Re: anyone using this???`airbagit.com vavle block?

yes. valve heaters. they will go inbetween the 1st and 2nd vlave and inbetween the 3rd and 4th valve. Thy should heat the valves enough that mosture in the air wont freeze the valves shut. dont get alot for really cold weather around here but it is very wet cold with lots of moisture that gets in the system.
