I'd start by going in and doing an o-ring overhaul. It sounds like the marker isn't sealing as well as it could be. It may be that the o-rings are just getting worn and may not be showing the wear. It happens. Just a heads up that you really don't need to lube the marker every time you play. Unless you're shooting 5-8 cases a day.

As well the set up is:
Aka 2liter set to where it will chrono
LPR 75psi (**LP popit valve what gives??**)
aluminum bolt pin
LP popit valve.
1. When you lube your 2-Liter remove it from the gun. Bleed the reg by putting the oil in the macro line and then turn on the gas and let the oil blow through the reg (covering the internals) and into a rag or something similar. Don't shoot it with the reg on the marker or you'll get a ton of oil inside the marker. Your noid is probably fine, however, I'd speculate that your internal o-rings are covered in a layer of synthetic lube (because hopefully you're using the correct oil instead of something like Gold Cup).
I'd start by doing an overhaul on the key o-rings...including taking a towel to dry off the LPR, Poppet and racetrack o-rings. Then the ram o-rings. Use a squeegie, pipe cleaner, rag, etc. to clean any oil residue from the inside of the body/reg areas. Let these components sit overnight then lube with Dow 55 and re-insert. When you have oil in the internals and it gets in the Dow, my experiences indicate that you get irregular seals and will see pressure/velocity fluctuations.
