My friend uses his pvc one for his car and all of our friends. Works great, you can make it much cheaper though. Instead of using a nipple for the air hose and a regulator, just use a valve like the one on your tires and fill to desired psi with the same tool you use to fill your tires. If you lived closer he would hook it up for you this weekend. Very easy to use and you'll find boost leaks you never knew you had.

yeah im quite certain there are numerous ones... i will have to do that... i was thinking that... cuz that would be easier to regulate just how much air was going in... i was also thinking of trying to figure out a way to die it so i could see it easier.... but havent thought that up yet.

I made one that looked pretty much like this:


Just like 10 sec said. Instead of a fitting for a compressor, I just used a regular tire valve. I think I got the valve at autozone for a few dollars and the PVC pipe cap and connector from home depot for under $10.
