Valve not opening fully?

I just got the warped airsmith bolt pin for my 07 and with my dwell at 15 and my lpr half a turn in from flush it was not opening the valve fully so I couldnt get it to shoot over 240 My question is if I turn my lpr back to flush will the extra pressure on the ram make up for the lost weight from the bolt pin? I have no air right now to test it and I dont want to get out to the field and have the velocity crap out on me.Thanks for all the help guys

...I sort of think that your tank was low an air...as to the cause of the valve not opening enough.

...you can try to set your LPR screw flush to see if that helps...otherwise increase your dwell to 16 - 16.5 to see if that helps any.

I had the same problem. Lightweight bolt pin, Cure Bolt and Ti Rammer couldn't open the valve fully. Switched back to the stock pin and no problems at all. I gave the pin away. Lesson learned.

11 is way too low, try upping it to 14 at least and see if that helps .

Well possibly for your gun, I know they say you can go that low with the ti ram but all guns are different what works for some guns might not work with others, Just try upping your dwell and if you get normal readings you can lower it until you see a point where you get very low velocity.

For an 07 I believe 11 is pretty low for a dwell setting. I have my LPR in one turn and dwell at 13.5.

Correct me if I'm wrong but I believe the Ti rammer bump pistons combo created low FPS.
