New Lotus body + evo valve = problem?

I used to use a 2k vert body, but decided to get a lotus for various reasons. Well I put it all together and I put my valve in and put dow 55 on the oring on the valve body. I air it up and its leaking down the problem. I know the problem isn't that the gun is cocked, the cup seal seems fine, and there is no damage to the orings (even swapped it out with another). I also tried using shocker lube and regular paintball gun oil on the cup seal. But yet to no avail. Does the regular sized evo (belsales) valve from the 2k cocker not the right kind, also thinking about getting the mq2 would that solve my problem? What should I do?

replaced the one on the valve body and used tons of lube to try to make sure it seals (so much for that doing any good) also my cup seal seems fine. I've heard things about freeflow used to use tungsten hammers and that screwed something up. Does that apply to this situation?

Ok, I'll try it but I don't know how that would make it stop leaking. But thanks, any help is better than none; just hope ur right, all I want is to get this fixed.

is the pressure too low? air it up and cycle it a bunch see if it goes away...the cup seal may have to be seated properly for the leak to go away
