Ion Question

My Ion is retarded. It was operating at 210 psi without paint. With paint, it dropped to 140 psi. I was having a lot of shoot-down, or no shots at all. I thought that it was my battery. If anybody has any input, post.

EDIT: I have a QEV, and it was set to 15 blinks.

Also Dwell might set a little too low, if your running the stock board and bolt, I wouldnt go below 20 clicks.
92 % of PBnation would be dead if Hostile Kids said breathing wasn't agg. If you're in the 8% that would celebrate the mass suicide of the fanboys, put this in your sig.

I highly recommend you lower your operating pressure to under 200... The internal hoses may pop off and cause all kinds of not so fun things to happen. Not to mention that the solenoid barb is made of plastic and if that snaps then you'll be sidelined until you can replace the solenoid or entire board.
