Nothing much, maybe the way it looks, but i have an ego9 and the diff is the way it shoots, little smoother than previous models, etek are bulkier, id say 06 ego/07 ego if anything

Etek is the base model of an ego 06
big difference to an ego8 I had was
-no LCD screen
-no QEV
-HPR is shim stacked (like a DM) instead of spring like a new egos
-no cure bolt
-no zick kit
- board only has microswitch where as ego has both micro and optical
- weight and size
- solonoid of etek is servicable but the ego7/8 is not. But the ego9 I think is servicable
- feed neck
- etek came with a 1 piece barrel

I may have missed something but these are based on my observation

Yes, but before you drop alot of money on an ego, try out some older years first, you can find nice 07 egos pretty cheap, if you like the way it shoots then get a newer one, I've owned every model ego, and I can personally say they have gotten better every year, the 09 egos are amazing

Or if you wanna join the pe army but still wanna shoot a spoolie there's always the geos

an ego7 will serve you well enough to determine if it is something you want. they are great markers, just not everyone likes them...

you might find a geo and tune it properly more to your liking

There's not a lot to tweek really. You may be barking up the wrong tree using PE guns for this. Unless you plan on doing some serious modding.

Maybe if you explained what you plan on doing? I'm sure others have already been down that road and may be able to give you some info.
