I need to know what compressor to get, i am only running the front setup right now and will probably get another tank and compressor when i do the rear. justcompressor.com has blowjax, yes i know this is AIM stuff but ive heard good stuff about their compressor, they have a 33% duty compressor that is supposed to be better than the Thomas 317 for 119 bucks, I need some input here!!!!!!!!

the rule of thumb that i have heard for using the Thomas 315s or 317s is 2 compressors for ever 5-7 gallons. i plan on running 2 tripple chrome plated FBI 7 gallon tanks with a total of 4 Thomas 317 compressors. i could be wrong of cource so see what others post as well.:thumbup:

Do you have the 100% or the 33% or do you know, i dont think i want to get a 100%, too much right now, i think im only gonna get a 3 gallon tank too.

My rule of thumb

is to get the best first then buy again later. Viair 450's are 100% Duty cycle and we can do those for $240.00 From the ppl we have talked to who have used them, say they don't even get hot.

At least with the 100% compressor, if u add more tanks later on or you find yourself hitting the switches a lot u will have the compressor already there to do the job.

We have no experience with BlowJax and never will so we can't help you out there.

Thomas has the new 327 out with the flow rate of a 315 and the 150 psi of the 317.00

The price on those are in the $180 neighbourhood.

i have 2 thomas 315's to a 7 gallon and i fill mine in 2 minutes....just know that thehigher you set your pressure switch the longer your compressors will run.....and the higher you go the more likely you are to burn them out:thumbup:

Well to make it easier... one 317 for every three gallons of air... now running 4 - 317's... that's about an 80 amp load... you're looking at a new alternator there too... it might just be cheaper for you in the long run to go engine driven... well wait actually it will

4 317s at 150 each = 600
New alternator = 200

**** man for $100 more i'd get an airlifts engine driven, would be a lot wiser investment for you.

I agree. We have an engine driven going on an Hombre 2.2 and a 4.0 litre in a ford ranger.

Much wiser way to go. When I used to run only 2-317's and 6 gallons and had the system running the volts dropped right down. There not the smartest way to go any more.

I don't have a pic but they look like any other 12 volt compressor, a lot like the Thomas or Airlift ones since all Air lifts compressors I believe are Viair.

I e mailed you about the 4 link but it got sent back because it said the e mail account was full.
