Back when they had the T1 kits, many folks made their piranhas electro-pneumatic. You can also contact ICANSEEYOU because he made the transformation on his Evo.

Remember a "the one kit" or a "zip kit" will only make your gun partly pneumatic. It will still involve spring action in it. The zip kit is like 180. I don't think its worth it. For 105 more dollars you could get an ion and you would notice a difference between the two guns.

get the zip kit 180$
email the boss to make it fit your body.

I got the zip kit for 50$ (dont ask were) and I got a evo body and eyes and everything. And boss made the ram sleeve for me, and put it together.

I still have kinks to work out on it. A lot of people have had problems with their CP regs on their draguns T1's. I dont know why...but anywayz.

itll cost you over 200$
But id recommend you being very friendly with your blowback, and understand it well, and start haning out in the dragun forum.

You get sick of hearing about these threads, and all these assumptions about the Tboard...when dameon has made several already and they all have the same stats...

-but a couple things. Its a ***** to get set up.
-Performance is increased, and you can get a lot more out of it, but it is limited
-High maintence
-and its only half pneumatic

o god nemo u are the *** 1st off blowbacks are the fastest but when cycling fast the pressure being released is not to consistant in high ROF the zip kit or the one kit is allot more consistant plus no kick plus the feel of a high end gun better consistancy lower kick lower noise reduction pretty fast relyable and half way to a timmy is worth it

dude. $150 american for that crap. thats like 200 first of all. 200 can buy u a completly new gun. second sure u get that crap. but i talked to people that have them and they are ALOT of maitenance and u get leaks all over the place. you can also full max out a blowback for the amount of money it takes to get that. WOW so you can go partially electro-pneumatic. WHO CARES. once u max out a blowback it becomes much more consistent. get a LPC, high flow valve, good reg, lightweight hammer and bolt and there is like no recoil or alot of sound. PWNED!

re:

nemrod some times it not about the money but for some people they want to tinker or make a one off marker.the zips and dragon kits will work you just need a set of "qev" and a good lpr (two regs) one to drop the air pressure from 800 psi down to 400 or less then the second lpr to keep the air going into the noid from spiking and causing problems.splatt was one first to use t1 kit.he took reg 2k3 body and cut it the back off of it.My self i made custom spyder using a fmb razor body.I also having punisher custom make me a custom body.

From a performance standpoint (I'm all about performance :-D) I would just get a new marker and use your Evo as a backup. The Evo, in my opinion, is possibly the best back-up you could have. Reliable, shoots good enough to compete with anyone, and is low-maintenance.

You can sell your evo for $150-$180. Then put that towards a diablo wrath or an ION. For like $100 more. That way you don't have to worry about working out bug, tinkering, and problems. Unless you like to do those kinds of things, like a hobby.

I thought the zip kit was designed for spyders with the slim striker. I don't think a piranha will work. I have 2 piranha's and 1 spyder. Their strikers are different sizes. Is the zip kit Ram going to fit?
