The image kit is considered to be a stock kit.
Compared to what used to be stock in the very first matrixes it has improved effiency.

You should be able to get 1200+, most likely in the 1400-1500 range, more than enough for me atleast

If you want more effiency though you should look into an evolve gold boltkit, but unless you get lucky you'd be looking at a $100 investment at the very least.

Naw man everything you got so far looks to be a nice setup for some one getting in to Vintage Matrixes..

But if you are dead set on getting other parts, try AKA regs and LPRs/ or a CP trigger.

The two things to do for real performance increases are the top hat mod (lots of ways to do this) and getting a lighter bolt, either Orange SAM or a delrin Evolve one.

Put it this way, Most trixes you see owned by those who have owned them long enough, have an aka hpr at the least. I have AKA hpr and lpr on my main and aka hpr on my backup trix.

The hyper2 is a copy of the sidewinder actually. Both are great imho.

A common misconception. As I understand it the internals are similar, but quite different.

Could be, just going by what I was told by a dye tech

Ofcourse I see your post as a personal attack for correcting me and will forever poke my newly made voodoo doll of you with a scolding hot .308 volumizer.

Efficiency?... It's a regulator.

it is correct to use "efficient" for a regulator when referring to its performance, although not the word i would use. (stable, high flow, or -baddest f'ing-burn ur eyes out of ur head-make u poop urself-regulator --- are a few that come to mind)
