Etek 2 tunning help

Ok PE peeps.

I am looking for a little help tuning my gun. I am trying to get more air efficiency out of my Etek 2. My Etek is stock except for the cure 3 bolt. I don't have alot of chopping issues. But i have heard that you can make the bolt softer on the paint while gaining some air efficiency.

I have heard some talk about messing with the dwell on the board. Can someone please shed some light on this process.

Well I hate to tell you, but you heard wrong. Here's a guide to help you out.

Dwell Tuning Guide

Here's the general idea:

Smoother shot=> softer on paint, requires lower LPR setting, higher dwell to compensate (causing loss of efficiency)

Increase Efficiency=> lower dwell, higher LPR to compensate, slightly harder on paint.

All guns will differ so its best to follow that guide for the best results. Good luck
