Yes, it still works. I have mine setup with the force products adapter and the RT. if you have the original style A5 using one port for both the RT and cyclone, you'll have to get a different banjo fitting that only goes one way to the RT. If you have the style that has two ports, one fore the RT, one for the cyclone, then just put a small bolt or plug the cyclone port in someway.

The main thing to look at with the RT is the air output of your tank. I had a tank putting out 450 PSI that gave me problems for awhile, I thought it was putting out 800, but a shim was missing.

I ran my 98 custom with a rip clip and a super RT (1/8th banjo fittings and line) thing ripped paint. It was really cool.

I was tired of trying to get it working with HPA, eventually I found out I had to have a specific tank with a higher output set aside for it. eventually just decided to get rid of the cyclone just for the hassle. It's a great system with Co2 or High output tank regs, but since I already had a rotor for my TM7, might as well use the rotor.

never tried a gravity feed hopper since I have a variety of loaders, but I'd imagine it could quickly become a blender if you have your RT tuned even remotely well. I think gravity alone may be just a bit too slow. Any powered loader should do the trick.

Also, as a side note; the force products adapter does have a bit of wobble due to the two alignment post holes being a little wide. I just put a bit of hot glue or something (something that hardens, but still allows you to take it off) in the holes. I bought mine awhile ago, so this may be unique to me or they may have fixed the issue by now.
