dwell at 32 with QEV. whats wrong?

ive been looking on here and everyone is saying that when they got there QEV's installed they were able to get there dwell down to about 10 or something liek that. and when i got my QEV i was only able to bring mine down to like 32. is it because of the kind of QEV i got ( smart parts ) or did it get installed wrong? are those people that say they can get them down to 10 just blowing smoke?

I got the clippard QEV and My dwell is at 13 clicks from the bottom running like 130 psi. Works fine for me, and there is no smoke around.

This may seem like an obvious question, but who installed it and where did they install it? I have an eclipse QEV and a dwell of 8 @130 psi...

i had my local store install it. but i cant figure it out. is it possible that smart parts installed the barb backwards? i started at like 6 and bumped it up from there and it wouldnt shoot until i got 32 clicks from the bottom. could the QEV gotten tightened too much or not enough. is any one else having problems with the qev's from smart parts

My guess would be that it is installed backwards - your barb or quick disconnect is on the exhaust port.

actually there is a sp QEV because i got them from smart parts. i still have the tag and everything. well sp doesnt actually make them but i got them through sp and they have the sp tag and everything. so let me refraise my question. Is any one having problems with there QEV that they got THROUGH smart parts?

Hey genius, yes there is. Do a little research before you try and make someone look stupid so you dont make yourself look like an idiot. As everyone knows SP, Eclipse, etc. dont make the QEVs but rather put them in there own packages.

Im thinkin the QEV is either installed backwards or you maybe have a faukty one. You should be able to get your dwell down to around 10.

thanks for the back up adrenaline junkie. im not the only one who is having problems with the sp QEV most the people around here are having the same problem. i htink sp might have sent out a bad bunch im not sure though. shouldnt the barb be coming out the short end of the QEV? if i cant get this one working ill jsut try a different one though. any one else got any ideas of what might be happening?

Like i said make sure its not installed backwards or somethin crazy like that. If more poeple are havin this prob call SP and let them know. If you cant get it to work buy a QEV with Quick Disconnect from jaggy or airsoldier.

i already talked to some of the guys at smart parts and they said that it was normal to get it to about 32. and i asked them how come others could go so low and they said that it was jsut the QEV they were using. so im thinkin im gonna try a different QEV. and im like 98% sure its installed the right way. im gonna double check one last time though

There was a post on some QEVs being backwards; barbs on the wrong side. It is pretty rare but anything and everything happens I guess.
I really don't trust what SP says about the QEV. They would blow smoke just to not have to deal with you. When they work properly its pretty dramatic and 32 is obviously not what you payed for. There was a post on bolt wear from QEVs and I wonder if SP is taking the middle ground so they don't have to warranty the bolts.
I am sure you will have better luck with any of the others mentioned or your local store if they have the clippard or eclipse though the others have a quick disconnect on them.

Dang, whats the point of that QEV if it only goes to 32? I could get my ion to 40, maybe even a tad lower if i tried (never tried though), without a QEV. Take that peice of crap out and get a QEV with QD from jaggy or airsoldier.
