It will be fast no matter what setup you end up goin with of what you listed. I think the main concern with n00bs is they don't think it will be fast enough, until they actually get the bags installed and realize how fast it really is. Don't worry about how fast it will be, cuz it will be fast. Less than 1 sec, up or down.

I have the same setup you want except i got airlift 2b6 bags, dude when i hit the switches the front just flies up so fast i can't stop it at ride height, i have to air it down to get it to height. Trust me it's fast, faster than i thought it would be.

if u want speed ur gonna have to keep the pressure in the tank,
i have a f/s with 8 3/8's 1/2 line
all the way around and with enuff psi in the tank the front gets up pretty fast, right now im running 150psi, but sometime this week when i install my engine driven im gonna run 200psi

im starting to install my dad's bags in his s-10 , gonna run engine driven, 200psi with 8 3/8s all the way around with 1/2line with slam bags

he's got a 2.5 4 banger, so his truck should be able to hop a few inches no problem

laters

Im pumpim 175psi with the 2b6's and 1/2 fills 3/8 dumps and 1/2 in line. got it all from jason.
it flies man
I tap the switch and Im almost all the way up.
dont worry about it being fast enough,
I was, now Im worried about my engine falling out.
I have the 4.3 and I get 1-2 inches off the ground at full pressure.
I might get a 150 psi pressure switch, cause it flys
