Vanquish pooty bolt settings?

Hey guys, i recently got the full pooty bolt set and was wondering what dwell you guys were running your guns at? i have the updated v108 firmware. I know that 10 dwell was what he recommended, but when i tried to put the gun at 10 dwell, it would not cycle at all so i left it at stock. any input would be great! thanks!

dwell of 10 was recommended before the software bug was found on v104. You should keep your dwell where the marker will cycle reliably with paint.

When Pooty came up with the numbers for 10ms dwell, the value of 10ms dwell actually represented a much higher dwell due to a programming bug in the v104 firmware. If you read the v108 firmware notes, you will notice v108 "Fixed 10.0ms dwell error which cause incorrect dwell when set at 10.0ms"

There was some weird calculation error in the code that caused a setting of 10.0ms dwell to actually be 22ms+ (Every other setting was correct). Anyway I figured it out and corrected it so now 10.0 is actually 10.0. Anyone that was running at 10.0 it will no longer work that low, I expect. Hope that clarifies it for you.
As for settings, you can tune your Vanquish using the tuning guide stickied in the Vanquish forum, Vanquish Tuning Guide + Hot vs. Cold Weather Tips

So what operating pressure should I use for the pooty bolt? And would 12.0 work for dwell?

If your using the spring then you can go lower on the dwell. 10 would be minimum unless your orings and well broken in or you know how to oring fit your parts. I would start with the stock settings or a dwell of 12. Not sure what stock dwell is. Then adjust your reg pressure to your correct fps and your done. It's always best to start with a higher dwell and adjust your reg pressure. Play a game and drop the dwell by one. Keep doing that until your gun shoots inconsistent or has a drop in fps. Then you know you have gone too low on the dwell.
