help with 2k2 timmy build

ok so im getting a 2k2 timmy in a few days and im wanting to take some of my tax money, when it finally comes in, and give a huge makeover and i want yalls opinions on the parts im looking to use



a critical 2k5 frame, so i can use the 2k2 board and harness's

either an evil or empire front block, so i dont have to do any body work

an eigen barrel, of course i know this is personal preferance

an eigenram

maybe an empire poppit im not sure yet

alias lpr with aka scm3 internals, or just keep the evil one thats on it, but i doubt that

maybe a sidewinder or newer BL reg, or just keep the torpedo thats on it or update the internals in it

high flow hoses and barbs

and of course a new feedneck and asa but i dont need an opinion on those, anywa let me know what you guys think

Don't mix the Empire poppet with a lighter ram.

Using the old 14 point wiring harness in the critcal frame gets really crowded. I couldnt stand it and boughta yakuza board. Great board btw. The bl 360 reg and the aka 2 liters are my favorite hprs but there really isnt anything wrong with the torpedo. The alias lpr works great. Im not sure about the aka internals in it though. Good luck with you build!

Agreed, if you go the lightened ram route, use an Alias sleeve/poppet. The smaller face on the Alias poppet enables it to open easier (with less resistance).

well the eigenram comes with a lightened spring specifically for the style poppit you have, would i still need to get the alias sleeve/poppit or is it just an option

edit:also if someone could give me some insight on whether its really worth it to change out the torpedo, or also i know that juit was putting 360 reg internals in it, also is it worth it to put scm3 internals in the alias lpr

If you are going to use a non stock ram, either use an alias or 2k2 poppet, not an empire. 220fps was the highest I could get my necroram & empire to go. Swapped to a 2k2 & fps went up.

I didn't notice much.

IMO the torpedo regulator is fine, but the problem I ran into is that the macro line fitting wouldn't line up with my trigger guard with a 2k5 front block. I used every oring in my possession and couldn't get it to properly seal with out turning in the HPR so much that the fitting was sticking right into my palm. 360 alleviates all that issue, but I still prefer the look of the newer style torpedo regs.

I have a critical frame and 2k2 wiring/board right now and it works great. It wasn't too crowded for me at all, just stick it in there and forget about it. The WAS 2.9 board is phenomenal. Of course, if you want the LCD functionality you are going to have to get a frenzy board or yakuza OLED.

And someone correct me if I am mistaken, but didn't high flow barbs and hoses start showing up stock on 2k2 intimidators? Might be mistaken on this.

no they are not

they use them on proteges vices and G6R's for a reason

the most important barb is the back one a shorter hose in there can reduce your electronic dwell time I run my species in 6-7

if you are planing to tweek and invest time in your tunning 2k2 put all hiflow

but if you are going to use stock settings board and body dont touch anything

and for the love of Christ leave it all stock and test it first


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


2k2 and 2k5 timmys are almost the same

the diff are that 2k5 have shorter bolts and bigger blast holes but all of them have to do the same travel lenght "a paintball lenght"

reducing mass, weight and not knowing what you are doing will leave you a sour flavor in your mouth about B.L. products

try it stock first before touching anything and then just do baby steps if you are planing to do it by your self





Dont get me wrong I do love to tweek markers in a very diferent settings that most of the people here on the nation and some people even hate me for this

but the persons that have used my markers or setting they simply loved the way I run my stuff

I have tested any possible product before bashing it or jumping in to conclusions

but I recomend you to test it stock first

ok so what about the regs, is it worth it to get an alias lpr and put scm3 internals in it, and also would it be worth it to change the torpedo reg

edit:so all 2k2 and newer timmy's have highflow barbs and hoses

the 2k2 LPR have faster recharge rates over the alias the only upgrade in here is just the size

the newest LPR from BL takes extra volume space from the frotblock & cant use vollys but have derlin piston and same shrader valve used in proteges vices and G6R

if your torpedo works and dosent have too much wear leave it on your marker

you can buy some extra pbk derlin pistons for both of your regs and get a pair of hi flow valve cores at AKA for 20 bucks shipped
