    <font color="green"> You can find them for $30 and under pretty easily. I got mine on Ebay for $25 and it was in great shape. </font>

    I got mine for $30 at the junkyard, and that included the bracket to mount it to a small block. I wasn't even looking for one, but I had heard you can find them under the hoods of volvos. For shits &amp; grins I took a look at the import side of the junkyard. The first Volvo I looked at had one. /forums/images/graemlins/usaflag.gif

    Make sure you get the one with the longest stroke. They put out more CFM's. The tag on it should say something like XXXX10F or something like that. I don't remember correctly so look it up on one of the on-board air sites. The 10 means it has a 10" stroke.

    <font color="green"> The models are 206, 209 and 210. You want the 210. There will be an L or an R after the number, that just denotes what side the intake is on so it really doesn't matter for you. </font>

    "10" is for its cubic inch displacement. A 10" stroke would be one hell of a compressor /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif and almost 3 times the stroke of my 350 /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
