They really don't make a big difference.
I would set it up factory, then dwell/lpr tune tune the gun, with the LP Valve guide in it.
A barrel with lots of porting will make a bigger difference as well, but if you are expecting the same sound signature from an Ego as you would from a DM, Luxe, Geo, other spool, you are pretty much dreaming (unless you buy an LV1)
