Fake Purge Look

Is there a way to hook up a system to just do a fake purge look? I work at a paintball field, have a airsmith liscence and was wondering if I were to take a c02 tank, steel braided hose, a on/off filling system we use to fill c02 tanks and hook up a system. I'm sure it's possible, but I'm wondering if anybody has done it yet.

so let me get this straight.....u want to get a fake purge kit so u can purge and then when u race its gonna make ur car look twice as slow. Whatever its running for times NA is bad enough, now uve got to fool people into thinking u have nitrous.....theyre gonna think ur car is really slow.

Well duh. But thats still kinda like putting dual exhaust tips on a car with a single exhaust. Or putting "NOS" stickers on a car with no Nitrous, or a Vortech sticker on a car with no blower. It just doesn't make sense. But then thats the opinion of this old man. Its your car, do what you like.

I play paintball as well. if you wanna know a way to do this using "our" (paintball related) parts, then send me an IM on AIM (sn in profile) or PM me. I'll hook you up w/ a way.


I still think this seems pointless, but its your car, I will give you props for atleast attempting to do something cool...lol

My car is show and my engine is crap. Can't even keep the damn thing running. Why would I want a non functional purge kit? So people can think my car is fast until I pop my hood and show my big V6 par. Really scares the s**t outta them.

Fake purge kits are a waste of money. Save your money for something more functional.
