The only thing that you have to have to use HPA is an HPA tank. You can look into regulators as that will allow you too only use the pressure you need, but you dont have to have anything besids the tank.

Pick up a spring kit such as Maddmans or 32 degrees, they will help fine tune your marker. Like Sickdawg said you could look into regulators such as the Sidewinder to adjust the pressure to what works best. And good tanks to look into are Crossfire and Centerflag and they are well priced.

Actually all HPA tanks have built in regs but the cheaper ones aren't adjustable (they output a set 850 or whatever). It's debatable which would be cheaper... A more expensive tank with an adjustable one or a cheap tank with preset reg and an additional one to finetune it.

Just make sure that the output on the tank is 800psi-900psi.

you don't need an adjustable reg on your tank for an imagine, they work very well at 850 psi. if you want to get an inline it will probably work around 600 just as well.

lose the expansion chamber if switching to HPA, i think it'll mess with the consistency, better off with a inline reg or gas thru. (correct me if im wrong)

I know they have built in regs but getting a dual reg set up will work best and can be used on other markers.

Yeah, HPA tanks come with regs, but before buying one for a Spyder I would seriously consider a reg to get your FPS ajdusted correctly.
