No more probs with screwballs I have a 190 decibal airhorn powered by a 5 pound co2 tank . 210 decibals can stop a human hart .
I sugjest you don't give me a "break check"
Funny how fast people get out of your way when you have a semi horn hidden under the hood . I think some punk in a honda soiled himself after cutting me off today .
This is gonna be fun.
1:5lb co2 Tank .60$ from welding shop Same size as thad power tank except it will hold 400 lbs of pressure (co2)
2:Co2 regulator 100$
3:Air horn 80$ From Auto Value's Semi Division.
4: One Semi horn blow off valve From a semi repair place. 15$
5: 12 feet air hose and clamps Laying around in the shop
6. Honda being flipped over by air horn....priceless. Thanks BrackneyC

The Blow off valve is installed on the right side of the center console .between the console and passenger the seat

The Tank and regulatoe are installed behind the drivers seat to the roll bar with 5 large hose clamps .

The horns are installed where the old stock air box was . When I installed my supercharger the throttle body and air box was removed from the left side of the engine bay so I had the room .
Wala 190 decibals at 3 feet . It works great for telling people you are comming over an obstical or hill . They thing an 18 wheeler or some sort of land yacht is headed their way . You should see the looks I get when some one cuts me off .

Let me get this straight, You spent $255.00 dollars on your horn?
<IMG SRC="smilies/rolleyes.gif" border="0"> And your tank holds 4000 lbs of CO2? <IMG SRC="smilies/eek.gif" border="0"> Isn't it kind of hard to wheel with all that weight? <IMG SRC="smilies/confused.gif" border="0"> To each is own I guess.

No . I had most of the stuff in the garage . The Air tank also doubles as on board air . I can use air tools or air up my tires about 5 times faster than any o2 tank . The horn
and the blow off switch was all I had to buy . I put the prices in in case someone wanted to do it from scratch. 400 pounds of pressure . its 5 pounds of co2 .. Hence 5 pounds of co2 can create 400 pounds of pressure. One too many 0s oops . I als am an airbrush artist I use the tank to paint flames on jeeps and harley tanks,

O.K. I was thinking that was kind of big expense just to have a loud horn. I figured the 4000 lbs. was a typo but was just fawking with you! <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> Never thought of putting flames on my Jeep but maybe it would make it look faster when I'm being passed by everyone on the freeway. <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

5lbs of CO2 is 5lbs of CO2, its not like air tanks where thay can pump some up more than others. They sit at about 2000 lbs of potential pressure but are regulated down with either a set or adjustable regulator.
A 5lb tank will not fill that many large tires, I used to get about 12 fill ups of my 35" tires from about 6 lbs to 28 lbs, using a 10 lb CO2 tank.
Also you may want to be carefull about using your CO2 for airbrushing with oil based paints as CO2 introduces a lot of moisture into the air stream. My X is a somewhat renowned airbrush artist, we used to use compressed nitrogen for her mobil set ups, because its almost completely free of moisture.
Nothing wrong with a nice semi air horn though, I run one off of my York OBA using a remote exhaust ported solonoid. They definitely get peoples attention, I guess my girlfriend tugged a couple fo blasts at some skateboarders who wouldnt get out of her way the other day, she gets a kick out of it. Its also great for waking up a groggy camp when on the trail, but doesnt always make freinds, and people get sick of it very quickly. If you really want to hear the cool shit, you need to here Kevins(Far and Gone)Jeep with his Train Horn, that thing is fucking brain splitting loud.
