think its pretty safe to say that the general ballpark is gonna be about 160PSI/10MS then? At that I'm getting 9 pods, and I haven't seen the black sludge in forever.

I'm curious as well. Did we ever nail down an optimal OP for the bolt? Or has anyone seen anything definitive when messing around with their setups?

that would be a pretty average setting IMO.

however results will be different depending on what you want. efficiency or no kick.

Just curious but did you try to drop your dwell after the sludge stopped?

Yea, mine will cycle as low as 8MS, but consistency and velocity suffer.

What kind of numbers are you getting? I can get consistent firing at 10 ms, but I'm not sure about pressure or velocity consistency yet. I plan to do an efficiency test the next time I'm at a field.

I'm using the stock SFT guide. But I did some digging and found some smaller 12's that allow the bolt to actually cycle. I haven't run any paint through it, though.

Dry-firing helps break in the bolt. But make sure you take out the detents first.

That's really tight but I always thought lurker and gisgo talked about how low of a dwell you can run and that was one of the big reasons for the efficiency gisgo was getting during testing.

Yeah, and the fast return speed.

Got my eigenbolt in today. Now, I have a question since the manual is...well...garbage.

Do any orings go on the bolt. If so, what sizes, and where since the manual makes NO mention of which orings are on the bolt and only on the can.

The bolt sail oring is the the same. The bolt guide orings are tricky. For some, the red orings provided work well, for others they shred apart after a little while. You can use the stock 012 buna orings for the bolt guide, but you'll have to break it in for a while before it loosens up.
