A quick question on low pressure conversion for pure energy

So I just bought a g6r and need a low pressure tank now. I have the stock blue reactor (or whatever it's called) regulator on my tank. Do I have to buy the low pressure conversion kit or can i just take some of the shims out like the manual says to do the the lp kit anyway?

It sounds like you have a reactor 2 regulator.
You need to get the lp conversion kit. The shims and spring are going to be different, you can't just remove shims in an Empire/Pure Energy system. They need the spring and shims swapped. Only ninja has a design where you can simply remove all the shims. All other manufacturers require a spring/piston/shim kit in order to change the pressures.

I don't think the Pure Energy LP kit can get you down that low if I remember correctly. I think it will get you down to only 450psi or so - and it is not a matter of how many shims - it is a matter of replacing the HP internals of the reg with what comes with the LP kit. Those are your only 2 options - HP at 850psi or 450psi with the LP kit. However, if you make a pressure tester, you can probably mess around with removing shims from the LP kit to see if you can get the pressure lower BUT I'm not sure what that will do to the consistency of the reg output or the recharge rate.

If you're looking to run that low of a pressure your only options are to get a Ninja SLP reg or a Guerrilla ELOP reg.
Getting the shim kit for your PE reg is the cheapest option and it doesn't take long at all to do. Or have your field order it for you and install it as well, most fields will install something for you free of charge if you buy it from them.
