If you don't have enough air to drive your hvlp gun you will be very unhappy with it. Most hvlp guns require very high cfm to function properly. One option open to you is the new "high transfer" or "reduced pressure" guns. There are two companys building them, Sata and DeVilbiss. The Sata is caleed an RP and sprays nice but is very expensive and the DeVilbiss is called the Plus gun and it sprays better at a better price, msrp $389.00. The DeVilbiss comes with three different fluid tips for various products and the Sata comes with one. These guns will give you the material savings of the hvlp with a transfer of 70-80% but act and feel like a conventional gun and they use less air, 30lbs in with 10cfm.
