What to upgrade?

Im trying to figure out what i should upgrade on my g4. Ive put about 8 cases through it and had minimal problems other then the out of the box leaks which i took care of. Just trying to figure out what i should upgrade, or if it would be better to just save up for a new gun.

Bolt first on those. Make it feel like a different marker.

I do not think it needs any upgrades really. If you plan on tournament play then maybe the APE rampage is nice. I use the non OLED so that I can use stock grips. Gives me ability to adjust programming. PSP mode on stock board is not PSP legal. I run techt bolt in both guns . Took it out of one and run the stock bolt now. Had problems breaking paint. I love the eigenbarrel made by Lurker. I run the .684. Lurker barrel and ape board @ $90 gives you a pretty good setup.

how is it not psp legal? its the same as any other board. it wont do fractional bps but neither do the bob long frenzy boards on his brand new guns.

the engine is the best upgrade.. these guns dont need a new board like the g3. ape boards are great but not a big deal anymore, more of a preference.

Stock G4 psp mode is one trigger then the 3 shot. PSP rules is three shot on the 4th pull
from the rule book:
9.3.6.3. May fire no more than one shot per press and release of the trigger unless
9.3.6.3.1. The trigger has been pressed and released four times,72 and
9.3.6.3.2. The trigger has been pressed and released at least once per second since the
first of the four trigger pulls.

You could use it in semi just fine.

Then I would say board not necessary. I bought the APE for one on mine so that one of mine would be legal.. TechT bolt engine I thinks gets a lot of hype. You can feel some difference, not much. The main difference I noticed was the tech bolt engine was quieter. going back to the stock bolt not much difference in feel.

Upgrade from stock barrel, Save the rest of your money for playing .

I have not personally used a bolt engine in the g4. On the G3 the difference was very noticeable.

Also, it should be noted that the threshold with a modded techt engine can run around 100-110psi. That is almost HALF of the factory operating pressure. I never thought it made much of a difference until i went back to a stock g3. Stock g3 and g4 have a bit of noticeable barrel rise where the techt engine helps keep barrel rise to a min. Quieter means less pressure, less pressure means slower moving bolt and that means less kick.

The ramp point is probably set wrong. Default is 3 according to the manual, which should be tourny legal.
