although it doesnt matter that much with my imp as i run 140psi input and 7.5ms dwell with 88psi lpr. but yeah thats for a different section.
ok to clear up some confusion here
dwell is the amount of time the solenoid stays open and releases air. At a certain point there is know more air (that would aid in firing the ball) to be released. This is where tuning comes into play, wat u want to do is raise ur dwell at the chrono until the shot is not affected by the dwell and then drop it one point from there (u have to pass the point to find it). this is YOUR guns optimal dwell setting, every gun is a little different and needs different amounts of dwell because all solenoids are not created equally. as far as not wanting to break paint the way ull do that is by using less pressure (lower hpr) and the way to do that is to shoot in the 280's instead of the 300 zone, that will help if ur gun is breaking paint because ur using less pressure per shot and thats less air impacting the ball, as far as the lpr keep it flush but if u want to "tune" it wat u do is after u set ur dwell u then set ur hpr to the 280's, proceed then with turning ur lpr in slowly until ur consistency is not good or ur fps drops , then back it out a quarter turn (b/c u have to pass the point to find it) that is then ur optimal lpr
i just explained how to set ur gun up individually to YOUR own gun, doesn't matter the year the ups or anything so this and those are the setting us should use and if ur too lazy to do this use stock
THESE STEPS WILL MAKE YOUR EGO PERFORM AT IT'S BEST
btw if u do this make sure ur using good paint or u will get inaccurate results
EDIT: as far as fsdo if u get that with ur ego bump that up one notch at a time until ur first shot equals the rest of ur shot average
