I have heard to many horror stories about the az compressor. On s10forum.com there is a massive thread about failures. I realize they are working hard to get it fixed but until they do I will stick with my two 380s.

98 are you saying from 0-150psi yours fill in 35 seconds? That's hella fast, my two 380s to my 6 gallon from 0-175psi in around 4 minutes....sigh..

one of the main problems with the AZ is the piston ring..... AZ has a great warranty and they offer a rebuild kit that is very easy to do. the new design has a fan and a different ring on the inside and they work great. granted there are some flaws, but thats one thing i cant keep on the shelf. i will still run az's on my personal truck (soon).......

I plan on buying an AZ one day too, that way I can get rid of my two 380s...but ill wait until ALL the bugs are sorted out.

Badboy that time sounds about right, on my old bagged truck I used to run two 450's on a 8 gallon and the fill time from 110-150 was around 1min and 45 seconds give or take.

I have 12 gals of air, so with two 480's I would think that from 165-200 would take like 2 1/2 minutes. Is that about right?
Im not sure on fill time but I promise you it will make you sick. you can buy one of those EDC kits for 600 bucks or peice together your own and make the brackets for HALF that. and with a york 210 your looking at around....

York 210 = 4 CFM at 90psi at 1200RPM
(2) 380s = 1.70 CFM at 90psi (yes thats 2 380s combined)
(2) 480s = 2.19 CFM at 90psi (yes again thats 2 480s combined)

I have heard before at 0psi and max Rpm (6000 for a york 210) you can get 12CFM out of it. also even at higher PSI you can still get MORE cfm out of it by revving it up. The viairs are not able to match this at all. And at 600 for a out the door kit or less than half that for you to do it yourself I think it is MORE than worth it. Also you dont have to hear any stupid "EEEERRRRRRR" while its running. :read: EDC for life! :rocking: lol
