Thinning Sherwin Williams pro acrylic latex enamal

I am spraying a cabinet with Shirwin Williams Pro Acrylic latex enamel with a Graco 360 dsp sprayer. The paint can says to use a .017 to .021 tip to spray. The Graco 360 can accommodate only a .015 tip. How much should I think the Acrylic latex and should i use Floetrol for the thinning agent?

I wouldn't use Floetrol when spraying. An .015 tip might spray the paint ok. I'd try spraying first without thinning to see how it does. That should let you know if you need to thin and by how much. Most paint manufactures frown on thinning by more than 10%.
