Anyone know anything?

Just found this, seems like a good way to go.

- Change #11 rammer oring. Even if it looks good. It will be the largest black oring towards the rear of the rammer.
- Change the #11 oring on the rammer cap.
- Set your dwell to factory 14 with Virtue.
- ASA On/Off knob turned in to far? When you add your air system to the gun you want to turn the knob until you hear the initial gas transfer. Do not turn it more then one complete turn more or you will actually restrict the airflow coming out of your air system.
- Check the LPR. Make sure it is assembled and lubed properly. There are 5 pieces within the LPR cap. Adjuster screw, adjuster piston (small silver cup-like part), silver spring, followed by the piston and gold spring (See page 46/47 of the manual). Put the adjuster screw flush to one turn out, see if this affects the velocity at all.
- Check the HPR. Make sure it is assembled, lubed. Make sure there are 16 shim springs properly assembled.
Part: http://paintballshowcase.com/planete...himwasher.aspx
- While you have the HPR apart, check the HPR Piston reg seat. Make sure it is there and not cracked (See page 44/45 of the manual). Perfect pressure would be 325 psi. It can be achieved by properly assembling it then spinning the adjuster screw all the way out and then 3.5 turns in. This will give you the approximate pressure.
Part: http://paintballshowcase.com/planete...hprpiston.aspx
- Check the rear QEV. Make sure it is not loose or cracked. Loctite if loose. Replace if cracked.
Part: http://paintballshowcase.com/qevfort...goandego6.aspx
- Check the airline from the rear QEV to the manifold. Take the hose off the QEV and take the solenoid off the manifold. Blow thru the hose. It should flow freely.
Part: http://paintballshowcase.com/pneumat...deyourego.aspx
- Check the Solenoid. Make sure there is no physical damage. When a solenoid is coming to the end of its life it will often loose velocity and become very inconsistent. If it isn't leaking, 99% of the time you can change just the rear section...
http://paintballshowcase.com/planete...arsection.aspx
- Brass valve guide. If you look at the front of teh rammer housing there is a brass guide that is loctited in place. if it starts to unthread it will limit the airflow causing low velocity.
- Did you install a new bolt? The bolt may have been installed upside-down. The air passage should be facing down so the air can flow from the valve area out the front of teh bolt.
- If none if this works, it could be the rammer sleeve has a serious scratch or severely worn on the inside...

Oring kit: http://paintballshowcase.com/planete...gkitego56.aspx

That is pretty much all the possible issues with a stock EGO.

If the ASA leaks, it is either a problem with the internal tank o ring, or the o ring on the Asa pin itself. If it is a case of the latter, disasemble the Asa and replace the internal o ring. Give the remaining parts a good cleaning and you should be good to go. the low velocity could be explained by a couple of things; either the Asa leak is preventing enough pressure from reaching the reg, in which case fixing the leak will solve the problem. Alternatively, your regulator is undercharging, meaning that you need to re-grease the internal components and clean them out. The absolute worst case scenario is that you blew out your solenoid and need to get it replaced. Hope this helps!

Fixed the Asa issue, now just need to work on the low velocity. I've seen by turning the asa knob to far in, it restricts air flow. I hope this is the case.

It might be a bad qev (30$ fix)

Or it might be a bad noid (100 plus)
