Thanks for the reply!
HVLP, high VOLUME and low pressure, what this means is the gun uses a higher volume of air (more CFM) and it simply does not matter what the pressure is. A conventional gun like that 47016 would use a heck of a lot less air than the 43430 but I have no idea how well the 47016 would work, just can't see trying to paint a car with a $10 gun and expect much. I can however attest to the fact that the 43430 most certainly will spray AE and spray it well! I use a 43430 to spray AE with and it does a really good job, for these cheap paints I will use it instead of my Iwata but for sure your compressor is no where near up to the 43430's requirements.
