Thanks, already read that though. We knew that they weren't pressure rated about halfway through the build but decided to chance it. Plus we hadn't been able to find pressure rated parts. They lasted about 8 months before one blew up.

i have thought of it..
since: if i use four 1/2" valves i can use a 2" barrel :P

You would need sixteen 1/2" valves to equal the flow of a 2" barrel. And even then, interior restrictions would cause you to need more than sixteen valves.

16 valves?! Mwahah that would look funny.
But I can imagine alot of dead space there.
