Re: Can anyone help how many psi/cfm does the bus produce ???

at idle a bus' compressor doesn't produce much air at all. At high rpm's the compressor is capable of making a lot more cfm. I have a truck air brake compressor in my barn connected to a 220 volt 5 hp electric motor and it'll knock the socks off the now deceased stock compressor.

the most simple solution for more cfm is to run the bus' engine faster. Swapping pullies isn't a good idea. If you were to swap pulleys to make the compressor spin faster it would have more wear and tear on the compressor components causing it to fail sooner.

tanks are really easy to tap into. the drains are screwed in with common pipe thread.....like 1/4" or 3/8" npt. All you have to do is remove a drain, put in a tee reinstall the drain and a quick disconnect for an air hose. making sure to use proper thread sealant.
