    that is sweet dude, I have been trying to figure out what to use for a switch on mine. I have horns and air tank and plenty of hose to make it all work I am just trying to figure out what to use as a switch to let them blow.

    I tell you what - I JUST got a new valve installed today - I will get the part number for you tomorrow (I have it at work)

    But it is WAY better than the old valve I had - 1/2" all the way through - and definitely go 1/2" lines all the way through the system - it makes a load of difference - my horn is noticeably louder with the new valve.

    I'm into it around $250 if I add it up right - but I got my air tank for free, the horn for $100, and most everything else with company discount. Subtract out $50 for my dumb valve I bought the first go round.

    Here is the part number:

    SMC valve, part number: VXD2140-04N-6D1

    Call up Hydra-power Systems 503-777-3361

    This valve is awesome - was $63.18 my cost through company discount - don't know what street price would be.
