No, I understand that from Canton's literature, the EPC valve charges the accumulator slowly, and is supposed to discharge at full flow at a pre-set pressure (assuming it had sufficient time to re-charge with that slow fill thing going on). I just don't trust this compared to a full open line to the accumulator for charge / discharge.

I can't say, mine is now in shipment from Race Mart who another guy on these boards recommended. They absolutely have the best prices going on all Canton products.
