Ego 8 tune for smoothness

Sorry if there's a thread on this. I can seem to find it. If there is please direct me!
I'm trying to tune my ego 8 to be as smooth as possible. I have a zick 2 and hush bolt. All I've done so far is turn the lpr 1.5 turns in. What have you done that works? Board settings and lpr?

It's really up to you how you like to set up your gun. Depending on what you prefer, you can adjust for best efficiency, reduced LPR pressure or sound signature. The settings will differ based on what you're trying to achieve. And what works best for your gun may not work well for someone else.

For those interested, here are the stock settings for an 08 ego.

LPR: Flush
Dwell: 12.5ms (time of solenoid activation)
FSDO: 2.0ms (first shot drop off dwell increments)
Empty: 4.0ms (minimum time for the eyes to detect that the breech is empty-bolt is cleared and paintball has entered)
Ball: 4.0ms (time alloted for ball entering the chamber)
Pull: 3.0ms (minimum time to recognize the trigger pull)
Release: 8.0ms (time to recognize the trigger release)
BandHI: 75% (on opto setting(the point at which the trigger is considered pulled))
BandLO: 25% (on opto setting(the point that the trigger is considered released))
TT TOL: 0% (basically the bounce control % filter)

Hope this helps some people.

That's all you need to know.

Every gun will be a little different.

Try 14 ms of dwell and LPR @ 1.5 turns in, and go from there.

You can try a LP valve as well.
