ever use a qev on bushy?

anyone ever use qev with the bushy. If I kind find a t2 or trayless kit I would like to mod my bushy a little. I figure a qev would allow me to run lower pressure lpr and maybe smooth out my shoots

Best mods you can do are to the ram. I wouldn't waste your time with a QEV

my theory is it would allow a less restrictive path for the air to flow during the backstroke. sort of the same idea as removing the spring.

so its best to just polish everything, drill more holes in the housing, de-spring, and de-volume the ram assembly.

This. Simply polishing and porting a ram will yield incredible gains. Plus with the noid being directly manifold mounted, not a lot of air restriction that a qv would clear up. Any gains with a QEV would be superfluous, like going from 26 to 30 bps or something.

VDub has a really informative ram data post on ICD-O, you should check it out. Match a polished ram with a nice valve, that's all you need.

i guess I take a look at the stickies on valve info
I already polished the inner ram area so its shines pretty well
I am looking to sell it but I think it would be a nice gun to mod maybe send it out to get a mill job. I just dont want to hack it up and do wrong by ICD.

Here's the link to my testing:

http://www.icd-owners.com/html/index...wtopic&t=15739

Given that the Bushy is a manifold mount, I doubt that a QEV will help. If you are using a hosed setup, like the T1, I can see some possibilities. My suggestion:
Polish, polish, polish. Port. Don't devolumize unless you are using a lighter valve spring. the ram spring does help with consistency when using a stock valve spring.
