Cyborg Rx Tuning help

Back in march i picked up a second had cyborg Rx and loved it immediately. Sadly when i rebuilt it i screwed the pooch on the settings and now i have a lovely marker that will not shoot as it should. What i need to know is where should i start off on tuning this bad boy? I am currently only able to achieve over 275 fps if have it running very rough. It had no kick when i got it and was tuned wonderfully but now it is kicking worse then an ego 5. Here is a list of what i did when i rebuilt it.
-Lubed the hpr and lpr
-removed the rammer assembly and re lubed it. (The manual said to use grease so i used some dow33)

Since i have rebuilt the marker it has been shooting rather inconsistent and at a low fps when i have it cycling smoothly. I would have to wager that this all has to do with me doing something wrong with the regulators. Help is appreciated, thank you in advanced.

Here is a tuning guide for the RX:

Try using a thinner lube for your rammer. If you don't have any Militia Lube, try some monkey poo, techt gun sav, or even maybe thin out the dow33 with some gun oil.

I would start with the tuning guide though and see if that smooths things out for you.

Yes the tuning guide is a godsend. Do you have a pressure tester? That right there can make life immensely easier. Set the pressure to 180-190 and the lpr to flush if you can. If you follow the tuning guide and it seems really loud our kicky, check the schrader valve. Ive seen this been the issue with about 4 rx's at this point. All seemed to operate perfectly, just louder and kickier than should be expected and the schrader vale was the culprit.
