Minimum tank output pressure on typhoon?

I heard that Typhoons are built to run on CO2..would a tank with 450psi output work on my typhoon? it has a stab

You can try it. Since it has a Stab on it, that would drop the pressure anyway, but it would depend upon what the pressure of the Stab is. Because if it is set to say 700 PSI, and that is getting the Typhoon is shooting at right around 280 FPS, then putting a 450 PSI tank on there won't do anything for it. Starve it if anything. Some Palmers markers, not just Typhoons, work better with CO2, and others work better with HPA. Not that there is a formula, like Typhoons are CO2 only, and Blazers are HPA only.

The PPS Typhoon and Blazer were designed specifically with the use of CO2 in mind...as was the Palmer Stabilizer...that being said, they both will work on either CO2 or HPA.

Blazers will operate at a lower pressure than typhoons will due to the way the marker is designed, however they both work at pressures above 400 PSI usually unless they have been purposely set up otherwise.

If your marker has a Stabilizer on it and the adjustment screw is flush with the bottom of the reg cap the output pressure going into the marker is right around 450-500 psi I would suggest using at least a mid-pressure or high pressure output HPA tank with these markers as they will perform better in the long run because they are getting enough air supplied to the marker to work without issue.
