Invert mini has blowback. HELP!

I have been having blowback issues with my mini. I've spent about $50 trying to fix that darn thing.. Yet it still has blowback!
Here's what i have done:
1. Upgraded to v3 poppet
2. brand new solenoid
3. replaced all o-rings and lubed
4. reset the board
5. changed the dwell to see if that would work
6. broke in the spring
7. lubed the entire thing (making sure not to get lube in the poppet or poppet hole)
8. Changed the pressure on the regulator (lowered it in increments until i hit 150)
9. Checked over the stock bolt for damage (found none)

Anyone else have any ideas how to fix it???

Try replacing the bolt rubber tip as well as the bolt o-rings. Also check to see if your check valve is installed correctly.

I've replaced the bolt tip and the o-rings on it. Also the valve is installed like it should be.

Last thing to check is the check valve, make sure its there. If nothing else we can setup you up with an RMA and get it in here to us for repair.

Well, checked over the valve and everything seems to be correct. Aired it up and put 2 balls in and when i shot, there was still blowback (ended up hitting my deck that was 15 feet up from where i was standing. Any other ideas?

This is most likely the best thing we can do. Please email us at tech@paintballsolutions.com with the following info;

Name,
Phone Number,
Shipping Address,
Requesting RMA for Mini.

If you can include in there that you are getting blow-by or blow-back. That why they can note it on the RMA.

Could be a faulty gauge too, pressure might be well over what it's saying.
