The reason for keeping it simple is I work 6 days a week, have a wife and 2 kids. Not a lot of time for fabricating. However I know I would regret not doing it the best I could. Hmmm, I will start researching piston valves, I want as much power as I can get in a small package.

If you have sugestions post up here. when it comes time for building I will start anoughter thread.

Allrite after looking around I think I will go with a burst disk with a ball valve. this should be simple yet better flowing. I punched in the info in to GGDT I got a maximum speed of 417 FT per sec. I was hoping for better. any ideas?
