What size is that valve? #in? 4in? I can tell that that's a 1in valve exhausting it but... DAYUM!
ONe thing that I can also tell for sure is that the barrel looks like 3in schedule 80. Boogie, you outdid yourself on this one. :!:

The valve is the same size as the barrel. I think it's either 2.5" or 3".

Three things the gun looks "killer". Second how much did that whole vavle set up cost? And third how much air can be compressed in there.

I guess it is 3 in valve. I bet he got it off eBay, they had a crapload of 3in valves a while ago. That thing must have a monstrous air flow through valve. Maybe better that the supah?

i dont think so because the supah uses a 3in opening too, and its already better then sprinkler, so if they have the same size hole, the supah has even more air flow.

i'm not sure if its a sprinkler or a solenoid valve like the ascos which are actually made for air. you cant get one on mcmaster, and damn unlikely taht you'll find one cheap on ebay either.

and walrus, the supah doesnt have a 3" opening it has a 2" opening, the tee that it's built on is 3"

I doubt a valve that big needs much PSI to destroy stuff.
He probably got the valve off ebay. It's become my favorite place to shop.... :P
