Curious to see an efficiency test with a 68/45. I know a few people who still swear by their PM's, and rightfully so. They shoot really well. Lurker went with the high volume/low pressure concept with the eigenbolt for the shockers (I've seen thm as low as 140psi), as did MacDev with the Clone (my GTi runs 95psi@290fps).

Did you polish the bolt at all? It made a pretty significant difference on one of my shockers

Neither of the bolts are polished... I've been wanting to but I've heard conflicting reports on its success rate... And I didn't want to be minus a bolt for 2 weeks either!

an efficiency test may come in the future but honestly will probably come in less then the 9-10 pods Pm8s usually get.

when I thought of this mod I decided I didn't care about efficiency because I use a 91/4500.

The GTi is pretty crazy with its efficiency I've been studying its engine to try to understand .

maybe when I get some extra paint that is not .675 I'll do an efficiency test...

its not a pm8.9 unless you bore out the dump chamber but then it would be to your specs and you could call it whatever you wanted.

I have a very poorly done efficiency test on video where @275ish fps and a significant underbore I got 10 pods.... but it was cold and i blended paint which is why i havent published it.

About the polished bolt, check out what ccluff2 did in the shocker forum a while ago. He did a polished bolt where he didnt polish the anno off completely, but he like half polished the anno. hard to explain but i think you might want to check it out.

Found the thread I was talking about, maybe this will get you thinking a little? Maybe this will be the solution you want for bolt polishing
