What's up guys. I have a 2k4 Imagine that I've put some mods into, and I am trying to make it better. It's got stock springs, a 32* Rocket Valve, a TKO 16" ported rifled barrel, a 20oz tank, a VL Revo MkI hopper, a venturiless bolt, and otherwise stock components. I plan on adding a drop forward with an on/off and new SS lines to save my o-rings and balance the gun, an ACS bolt to prevent chops, a gauge to monitor my co2, and I am going to polish the internals to reduce friction. What else can I do to improve the performance on my gun? I don't want to mess with the electronics or get a new trigger assembly, because my ESP frame is good enough for me. I know I'm part of the way to LP, but I'm not sure what else I need to get the pressures and noise down and the efficiency up. Anyone who can suggest other areas to mod the gun feel free to post. I'm not replacing any aftermarket pieces I already have, and the stuff I am adding is on the way, so that stuff isn't going to change either.
Thanks!! :devil:

Oh yeah, it's pretty accurate now, and I'm a good shot, so that's not an issue. Also, I like playing backman, so low noise and efficiency are key for me, since I like to sit and shoot. :cool:

What's a Tboard with eyes, and what are the advantages and cost?

HPA sounds good, its a transferable upgrade too so its a great investment

Guys, I'm really mechanically adept and I'm not a newbie for strategy or stuff like that, but some of these abbreviations are new to me. If you can spell stuff out that would be good.

so is HPA like nitro or something? I'd like to stay with the Co2 because it's cheap and easy. I know the whole thing about inconsistency, but I haven't had any problems with that yet.

Does the Tboard replace the circuitboard in the grip? Where can I get one or look into the price? I can rip shots off faster than the guys I play with, but any BPS increase is good to me :D

HPA = High Pressure Air, which is Nitro, Compressed Air, etc..It's your choice, i understand that you don't want to blow $200 on a tank..

The T-board replaces the circuit board inside your grip. It enables you to get unlimited bps (uncapped)... Im not sure about price and stuff, ill leave that to the other guys

Ups.

Well if you are staying with co2 then id get a 32* whisper barrel.
For going LP get a ole 40 buck j & j that has small porting on barrel.
The valve kit you have does it have the 1/16" thick teflon/plastic washer on the sealing side of the cup? Vary important info there.

Hmmm well save your money on the ACS bolt and either A. Keep your stock one or B. the preferred is to get a spudnuk bolt direct from the guy that makes them for like 26.00. That way you can keep your orings on the bolt to reduce the blowback. Getting a halo B now or Empire B now will eliminate any bolt chop you could possibly have.

Get an assault block and a tolpedo regulator will work good. A spring kit and you should be kickin good.

I don't get ball chop too often, the Revo seems to keep the gun filled. I just figured as a preventative measure, the ACS bolt can't hurt. I was looking into Bob Long regulators, because I've heard they are really top notch. I'm not sure on the rocket valve, I bought it well over a year ago (more like 2 years), so if they revised it I don't have the new one. When I installed it, there was a cup seal with it, but I read and was told to stick with the stock one for better result.My barrel did a good job of quieting the gun down over the stock 9" POS, now i just get that typical Spyder ping when I fire.
