kit is cheaper but i dont like the kits..IMO

i pieced mine together..ive got a bigger tank bigger compressor..in the long run..louder honks less fill time but more money overall..


if you wanna do it right your gunna spend some cash..if you dont wanna spend handful of hundred dollar bills then dont get em..

ive got 1500 in my kit..its pricey but its something that i LOVE..so i did it..

its a viair 325 150 psi compressor, water separator, air valve for the train horn, then a on off pressure switch pressure gague and wiring kit. I paid about 275-280 for everything I'd sell it all for 245 shipped. No tank in this deal

The compressor has never been run, everything is brand new except for the tank, which is the condition i got it in.

if you want to look at a easy set up, take on off of a old truck. We did that for my dads old H1, that compressor will keep up with whatever you throw at it.
