Question Evil detonator on 98c

Hey pbn, quick question... I had a non-functioning evil omen that some douche sold me yeeeaarrs ago on PBN and I finally just ripped off the "evil detonator" and the ASA and steel mesh macroline. I was considering sticking that on one of my 98c's but I read a few threads stating that the detonator would not work with the 98c unless I had the LPK kit. Is this true?
Also, how difficult would it be to put the regulator on one of my 98c's?
Thank You
-Mike the noob

you can just buy a vertical adapter and screw any regulator into it.

i have seen people use regulators without the LPK, but I am not sure of the results they had.

How much do those vertical adapters usually cost?

I use an AutoCocker inline regulator on my A5 and it works just fine. Last time I checked it's at 350psi and working just fine. Not sure what an LPK kit is, but I'm fairly sure that the 98C is designed to work at low pressure or high pressure. Anywho...

Thanks Noah, what benefit does adding a regulator provide? Sorry for the outstanding noobosity of that question.

LPK = low pressure kit

A regulator can more than triple your air efficiency. Currently, I get about 1200 shots from my 62/3000, up from about 300-400 before. It just lowers the operating pressure so that it requires less gas to operate. Also, it allows you to use your tank down the the reg's output pressure before velocity suffers!

Would you be willing to sell the Omen as a package for cheap? I've always wanted one.

Also, as everyone said, you would need a forward ASA as well as an HP reg or an LP reg with an LPK.

A reg DOES NOT increase efficiency 3x over. Not sure where you got that number from. Also, when you lower the pressure, you increase the volume, so overall, not much is changed.

I would be down to sell the reg + asa + line for 18$ shipped.. Only problem is that it is at my house in Columbus so the soonest I could send it would be next weekend ...

So, why would I need a drop forward and lpk to add that to my 98c?

You may need a LPK to add the detonator to your 98 to get the velocity you want. Some 98's work at 400 PSI and others need 700 PSI to work. What I mean by that is being able to cycle and send the ball flying at the desired velocity.
