Air Horn HookUp Parts needed.

Since I had to remove my horns for my 4" exhaust to fit I figure I will go ahead and switch it over to a 3/8" air line going to the horns in stead of the normal 1/4". I am now needing the stuff to do it with. I need the air control valve and all the fittings. 3 90o fittings 4 straight fittings and 1 4-way so that I can hook the valve up on 1 and each horn going off each of the other ones. Let me know if you know if you can help me out. Thanks. I am looking at getting all this stuff ASAP.

IF you go to the larger line. You will lose flow and may not like the result.

I will have less air pressure??? I thought the bigger line would give me more air and make them louder?? Is this not true?

The pressure in the tank is the same but the line is flows through is bigger so if you don;t up the pressure then the air won't move as fast.

no...it's a flow issue. And to keep the flow high enough, you have to have the pressure to back it up. Ultimately, the horn's going to be the limiting factor. That's the last orifice the air travels through before exiting to atmosphere. going to 3/8" lines will help (so you lines are the limiting factor), but you also need to make sure that you have enough pressure to meet the flow rate of the horns. (ie get a pressure switch from 110-145psi).

if you need hoses and push loc parts, go to

My pressure switch is 85-145 now. i dont lay on my horn while I go down the road, I just like them to play with them and have them when I need them. You can hear what my horns sound like now in my link in my post. Can someone tell me for sure what the sound like will be afterwards.

Who can provide me with the fittings I need, or should I just pick up all the parts up at lowes and use there parts. Thanks.
