i am looking for some compressors (brand) that aren't that loud, but i don't want to sacrifice to much speed. What would you guys recommend from your experience. Is there anything you wouldn't recommend?

So how looud is it compared to others :confused:
I think all compressors are going to be about the same amount of noise. Just make sure they are mounted properly with the rubber isolators and you will have minimal noise. They also create vibration, so keep that in mind when mounting. If you are concerned about noise, go with a belt driven compressor or nitrogen.

so would a belt driven be as fast as a compressor or two? Also this setup is for a daily driver, so converting the ac isn't something i really want to do. As far as nitrogen goes, would it stay filled or would i need to get more nitrogen sooner or later? Also how reliable is the nitrogen setup, i heard it isn't the best for a daily driver.

you won't really find any then unless you want to use a EDC (sanden or york). The best electric comp on the market right now is the Air Zenith, but it's pretty loud, but VERY fast on fill time.

hit us up at 1.866.FUK.NLOW and we'll hook you up :cool:

Yea the Air Zenith does the work of 2 450's damn near.. They are a lil bit louder than the 450 but you would love the difference in performance..

Its been a while, just putting my 2 cents in, I went from 2 viar 450's to a belt driven, and from 0-150 psi with the viars was about 1-12 min, with the belt driven compressor, 0-150 was NO MORE than 75 SECONDS! Recovery time was heaven. But u have to "pay to play" no a/c or slow recovery, ur choice....
