      I didn't do the install, but I tried to get in there take my best snapshot, it's a tight spot.

      Thank you very much! I had a feeling it was installed like that. I like the whole install because its clean and everything is out of the way. You have anymore pictures? Would like to see where everything else is at and how the airlines are routed. Thanks in advance!

      I used the frame from sean's ^^ last setup. Just finished installing E-level tonight and building a new floor. The pressure sensor is attached with a hardline the goes into the input on the other side of the vu-4 and wraps around the frame.

      My trunk setup:







      I made a compressor anti-vibration rack, cuz i found the drone is too much in the cabin...




      It is dead silence now! Especcialy with the isolation! also mounted a fan that comes on when the compressor kicks in.



      The build is not ready yet, my goal is to isolate every panel that you can see.
      And this is the place of my V2 controller:

      Question for those that know the answer.

      1. When you air out the tank to drain water, do the bags air out too? Does the ECU prevent air leaving the bags?

      2. Let say your ECU decides to roll over and play dead. Your car is all the way down and you need to leave. Is there something that you can do to take the ECU out, allowing air going into the bags and continue your day?

      If your answer is YES for 1: Can you put a shutoff valve between the tank and ECU to prevent air going out?

      If your answer is yes for 2: What kind of safe guards can you do to help this process.

      Thanks

      with accuair manifold when draining tank you car will go down, with airlift dual manifolds car will stay up even if your tank is empty.
      i have installed smc check valve before accuair manifold and it holds the pressure even if the tank is empty.
      client was driving for a week without tank while the tank was getting powdercoated.
      as long as you dont have any leaks in the system and dont air out,cause there is no air reserve tank.

      also if your ecu is dead and car aired out, you are able to trow direct power onto the valves and activate them for a little to let some air in the bags.
      one of my friends had to do that with his e-level when ecu just suddenly died and aired out whole car while he was driving on the highway. ( that was a scary moment)

      Adding a one-way check valve is some good info! thanks! That is the main thing that had my a little iffy on getting bags. The "what if" I have some pretty ****ty luck. So my next question, having a SMC check valve save your ass if the AccuAir ECU decides to die? Or does it just allow the air to stay in the tank if the ecu goes? I want the AccuAir set-up, just trying to put in safe guards to prevent the moments.

      smc one way check valve would only help you to keep car up if the tank is empty,but if ecu dies as i said before you could always just jump power directly to solenoids and get air into the bags
