Closer stock engine efficiency

Just bought a used Closer and I didn't want to mess with it the first day I got it because it was working perfectly. But one thing I noticed was I was getting about 3 pods and a hopper on a 3k fill. Is that usual for a stock Closer engine? Is there any way to make a little better on efficiency?

Not really. 800-1100 off a 68 45 psi.

Supercharged engine is only way to get more

Pe's are hard to find now. The sc engine is same externally, But internally have stronger competents.

Bjorn and Terry told me at Chicago that the stock engine was always the way to go for a buttery smooth gun... if you could deal with lower efficiency. The SC engine gives you more shots, but never felt as smooth. That's one of the reasons I've held off on SC'ing my Darq.

8 pods and a hopper on a 68 3k fill is hard to say no to though from the sc engine.

I never noticed a huge difference between my PE'd (later SC'd) RL Marq and my Marq 6 with the stock engine (which I put a PE into as well). I've heard a few people say that the stock engine is smoother but I think the difference is pretty negligible

True, but the stock engine gives you spool smoothness without the maintenance. Of course you also have spool efficiency LOL

Yeah but igornaceinabag has more paint through that one engine, than you wanna know.

Underboring, shooting a little slower. and playing with the pressures might help. But it's still not going be the best effiency

I'd go with the sc engine if you are wanting the efficiency... The difference between the stock an sc engine on how the shot feels is not that much of a difference to be honest... Just my 2/100ths of a dollar
