The ARB twin compressor has the highest rated CFM of any that I could find and has a constant duty cycle. It's a beast.
The Power Tank has its applications I suppose, however it provides a limited supply of compressed air, where a compressor will provide as much as you want or need. With a tank(even a small one), it's much more versatile IMO.
Gotchya. DO you know where you are mounting the compressor yet?
I am thinking onboard air will be one of my next mods. I kind of like the idea of that portable setup they have too, to easily transfer from vehicle to vehicle. But a permanent setup for the PW just sounds like a winner to me.
The plan is to mount the compressor behind the fuel tank, on the underside of the bed, using a custom mount. There will be a 3-foot stainless braided airline running from the compressor to the air tank, which will be mounted just behind the sub-frame for the trailer-hitch. I'll be sure to document the install and post it up here.
The portable unit is really nice, if you have multiple vehicles it might make more sense. For me, the Wagon is my daily driver and I didn't want to have another toolbox taking up space in the bed of my truck. By mounting it underneath my truck, it's out of the way and always there.
