1st gen Marq tuning question

So I got this Darq Marq with the stock engine. Which I'm trying to make as smooth as possible. I'm used to tuning DM's so I'm wondering if I could try and do the same sort of thing with this marq.


Simple question, will increading the dwell by either a little or a lot allow me to use a lower lpr pressure without inducing any dropoff or something like that?

Efficiency is something I don't really care about. I really only need to get 3-4 pods plus a hopper of it.

you can but with the way the valve opens, i dont see a huge drop is any perceivable recoil. your efficiency will hurt, and consistency may hurt a tad.

the gain at best would be negligible.

I say go for it. if you have a pressure tester itll even easier for you,
and worst case, to undue any changes.

cycle the gun as you adjust your pressures.

Marqs have poppet engines, so you need some speed for the ram to open the valve fully. This limits the minimum LPR pressure, unlike DMs, where you have a huge range to balance dwell and LPR pressure.

You can tune Marqs like you tune stacked-tube poppets. You can probably bump up dwell 2-3 ms above stock and that should allow you to lower your LPR pressure a little without losing too much velocity or consistency.

Of course, I didn't even think about the ram speed needed to open the valve. Been away from the game too long I guess. I'll probably just keep it within the normal range then. Maybe try to bump the dwell 2-3ms and see what kind of LPR pressure I can run.
