I'm really partial to the Desert T1 kit. Haven't had any experience with the others.

I would suggest picking up the blem kit Rainman he has in the misc. sub forum right now, You're not out the regular $65 because its only $45.

Like i said earlier in the thread I love both of my Rainman kits and i would recommend them to anyone with a phantom.

Mine was a seamless install, no problems. Make sure you're screwing in the correct side of your elbow (the flanged out side should go into the VA).

my install was no problem also. if anything I may have used teflon tape, but loctite is superior as long as it is applied appropriately.

Yah i just put some loctite and tried putting it on again, gonna give the loctite 24 hours to fully set and then air it up and see what happens. i really love the feel of the DT1 but if i cant get it to work then ill just throw my rainman on it.

Is the leak coming from the top hole where you mount it to the frame? That hole was drilled to far and breaks through to the air passage. To fix this, I used loc tite and a short set screw to seal the air passage off. I can't imagine it would be leaking, but if that is in fact where the leak is coming from, take the screw out and try another round of loc tite.

Sorry that you are having that issue as it is something I thought was pretty much resolved before the kits got sent out.

The leak was coming from where you screw in the compression elbow, i guess it was getting around the threads. i put a nice coat of loctite on the the compression elbow and tried again and this time i had no leaks.
