Are you serious? Stock gun goes for stock settings. You think any manufacturer would put out a gun and have ridiculous settings on it?

A different bolt will most likely result in needing to change the dwell also.

Dwell is different in every marker even markers with the same parts will vary. If you have been reading up on ion tuning you should know the basic procedure to reset the dwell. Do it, Do it now....in the words of arnold.

Bolts will cause your dwell to change only slightly (most of the time) The biggest factor is the QEV that can cut your dwell in half. A completely stock Ion comes from smart parts at 52 clicks (34ms I believe). I have a Virtue redefined board, Virtue QEV, and a shocktech bolt, and my dwell is now set to 14ms.

I have a SP Firebolt, AKA 2Liter + Reg, SP 360 QEV, and stock board and my settings are 20/20. I never have any issues with drop off and I'm always +/- 2 fps at the chrono.

So, for an Ion with all stock internals. The best thing to do is leave the dwell as is, and to set the ROF to 0? To do that you simply set the board up so that it is on Decrease ROF mode, then keep pressing the power button until the inside of the grip frame stops blinking, then you pull the trigger to save the settings?

On my Ion I have the L7 and a 360 QEV + Stock board. I believe me Dwell is set at 12 or 14 MS.

Ok I'm stumped I have my dwell at 25 clicks and recharge at 70 still above 12.5 balls a second mind you but I have to turn up my reg to like 180 to get around 270 to 280 for a few balls then drops to the 240 to 250 range... Do I need to increase my dwell to lower my op pressure...

Stock reg
360 qev
Blackheart board
16" sp barrel

Dwell should be fine, could even be lower but it depends on the tolerances of your particular Ion. I run at 20 clicks with a 360 qev, stock everything else.

Could be something else, try cleaning the reg. Ignore the guage (especially the hit-or-miss stock guage), as long as it's operating within legal velocity limit, the pressure should be within a safe range.
