Eigenram in Dark Intimidator - Issue

Well guys I'm a little stumped on this one. I recently picked up a Dark and it shot great with the stock ram in it. Switched the poppet spring and ram out for a lurker set up (which I typically like to do), and I'm having a starving type of issue now. I've tried multiple LPR's and HPR's, as well as a few different ASAs and Tanks. The only varibale changed in this gun was that ram and I can't seem to keep it from starving off on a stream of paint. I have the ram weighted with the brass insert (the macroline chunk seemed to cause more issues), and that seemed to help a little bit. Anyone have any ideas for me on this? Am I missing something? After swapping around regs and such, I also went through and serviced them. Tried again but still no luck. Thanks ahead of time guys.

Yeah drop off (I was going off of the verbage the intimidator manual used - no worries Gamer - I've read all the manuals a couple of times )...interesting as I've installed quite a few of these and never had this issue before. It seems to me that in the rapid streams the softer poppet spring can't quit close up the poppet fast enough? Maybe try a fresh Oring on the poppet? Though the poppet sealed fine stock. Thanks for your help guys. Oh and of course my operating pressures are correct.

Probably the rear ram oring was bad so it didn't open the poppet consistently at higher rates of fire???
