I've had good luck with Viair, only ones I've ever used so therefore I cannot reccommend others, what I like about the viairs is they are rebuildable, one thing to look out for is the duty cycle, most compressors arew 30%, the higher duty cycle you get into (as well as the higher CFM rating) the higher $ you get into....I run 30% duty cycle comps, mostly because I'm not cycling my system a bunch, if your continually on the switches wastin air, then you need a higher duty cycle....

Iv used them all. Viairs will be the most reliable. How large is your tank?
The Viair 400c will get you the most air for your buck. It flows 2.54 CFM but only has a 33% duty cycle, and 150 PSI max rating. Viair 380C and 480 are 200 PSI pumps with 100% duty cycle. PM me if you need more info, I can get you what ever your looking for.
