      it's only a schematic, but for a simple up/down system, would this work?

      may i add that no one should do this set-up EVER. pay the extra few bucks and do it somewhat right. you need 8 valves, so each line has it's own pressure and it's adjustable. if you don't believe me, i hope you don't get sea-sick. ever been in a boat? that's what this set up entails and it's DANGEROUS.


      you can also get away with 4 check valves if you want to run 6 valves.

      great thread, I really LOVE those copper lines from the valves to the tank, they look absolutley amazing....

      I gotta think about that for my next setup in the audi for sure

      no it wont, unless the bag as 2 lines going to it one in and one out which would be stupid.

      do mroe research before you try to go a 'simple' set-up...

      you definitely should do an 8 valve set-up. Idk if your drawing is just lacking details and thats what you plan on doing, but thats definitely not gonna work.

      Here is mine: I used the suicide doors set-up and added my extra parts.

      Ok, those have to be the smallest accumulators I've ever seen. I've only seen ones that are a 2 or 3 gallon long tanks. I like that much bette. You custom make those or is there a supplier?

      It doesn't look like it would be that hard to make, just some 120 Aluminium Tube, cap the ends using a tig, and then drill and tap for fittings. Probably took about 2hrs to make.

      much better to use a solid block of billet, drill through all the way, drill in the 4 ports and thread all the holes... what size holes would you guys want.. and what kind of spacing between the holes... i could make these fairly easily.

      Incase you aren't quite sure what you're looking at.

      2008 Cadillac SRX with the tank and compressor mounted underneath the car. It's in a void above the spare tire. The spare tire mounts right back in it's stock location hiding what you see now. Valves are mounted inside the vehicle.


      This is exactly what I want to do with my tank and compressor on my Eurovan! Any problems with grime messing up the compressor? How about vibrations on the body when the compressor kicks in?

      Yes, when you mount the compressor under, it tends to resinate through the whole car. But it is a sealed pump so it can be done with no problems.

      what compressor do u have?? its easier to make it quiet on the inside of the car than the outside cause u fan put foam, or padding or dynamat to contain the vibrations and noise inside, outside the car the compressors have to be very secure otherwise they are gonna make bumper, and w/e else its close to them vibrate and make it even louder.

      The compressor is mounted securely to the exterior, but let's just say it's a suttle difference between the manufacturing of my toyota body and your vw body So everything outside the car is loud. I'm prolly going to move my compressor inside and dynamat around it with a vent line under the chassis. Compressor is a P.O.S. right now, but I have $300 to decide what my next compressor will be...
