I was going to rebuild my Viair 450C due to it's age. The cost to convert to the new style piston was kind'a high so I bought a new 480C and gave the old compressor to my son. I was tempted to buy this clone, claiming 3.5cfm. ( $109 + a coupon to boot)

Hrm.  That is temping.  My 380 blew up before the last trip and I was going to buy the $70 rebuild, but this looks like a better solution

The new 480c arrived today. My old compressor is HUGE in comparison. Turns out I have the obsolete 550C, not a 450C. My son is shit out of luck 'cause I'm not swapping it out until it blows. I better start looking closer at stuff!  :hahaha:
