EGO 11 FPS Problem

so my buddy has an ego 11, and even with the reg screwed all the way out, it wont shoot over 280, i tried messing with this dwell, and with the solnoid ajustments ( tried the whole 2/7 3/8, and it cant get over 270 with those not turned up to like 9/10 ) i cant figure out what it could possibly be causing the problem. granted his ego shoots fine, and has 0 problems, but he literally cant get it up to 290, and im afraid if he plays with everything so turned up hes going to be blowing orings in no time. any ideas??

Rebuild HPR, LPR 2 turns in from flush, set SFR's to 5/7, reset board to factory settings.

Try a new battery, rebuild the regulator,LPR, and rammer orings. Then try? Many have this same problem, try searching a few threads and seeing what solutions they found.

Make sure there is no air in the gun turn the reg pressure screw all the way in and then unscrew it 2.5 turns out this should reset ur reg. what creeds are you using on the parts?

How does the paint match with the barrel. I would replace o-rings but I would start with the rammer o-rings. if you wanted to try something quick. Make sure you are using grease where you need grease and oil where it needs oil. Also use Planet Eclipse Grease and Oil. I have seen others thicken in the cold.

Try a different tank. Had the same problem and switching the tank fixed the issue

i had a similar issue with my ego 11, wouldnt shoot past 200 with reg all the way up. Swapped rammer O rings, set to factory settings and worked great.

1) make sure lpr and dwell are set to factory

2) take the hpr apart and make sure the reg seat (looks like a pencil eraser) is clean and not hung up. There should be a spring beneath it. It should be able to move freely.
