Well, it'd save everyone some time by simply linking here instead of re writing this whole thing 19 times like I had to for everyone who asked.  Maybe I'm just too nice :P

Everyone is PMing me about how to complete the Super R/T with a QEV mod on their 98 or a-5.  I'd like to ask a mod to sticky this post.

If you are like me, you thought the super r/t would be an easy mod.  You call Tippmann, they send you the parts, you put them on.  Once you get them, you realize you don't have exactly what you need to properly connect everything.  Here I will show you the easiest way to complete a full Super R/T and QEV setup.

First off, what is the logic behind the Super R/T?  By changing the hoselines and connectors from 1/16" to 1/8", you greatly increase the airflow to the R/T.  This in turn gives the R/T the ability to cycle faster, and will in most cases allow a rate of fire of 20 balls per second, sometimes more.  Some of you woodsballers may say that is useless, but it is not the only use for the Super R/T.  The larger hoses actually allow the user to hold the sweetspot of the R/T much easier, and for greater periods of time.  This means you will more than likely be able to maintain an almost effortless 12-15 bps, maybe higher depending on your tolerance.  Remember, the R/T doesn't just have to be tuned for speed.

The next question to clear up is how does the QEV affect the cyclone system?  When the stock cyclone cycles with the marker, air is forced into the chamber attached to the feeder and it cocks the cyclone, after the paintball has left the barrel and pressure is released, the cyclone is triggered and uncocks, spinning it and loading a new ball.  The air that was in the cyclone is forced back into the body of the marker.  By adding a QEV, the air is allowed to escape directly out the end of the cyclone, allowing it to cycle faster.  You need to understand that the cyclone does not spin when pressure is applied, but when pressure is released.  You can see this yourself by pushing the manual button.


On to the fun part!

What You Will Need:
-1/8" Flow Control Adjuster (10/32 threading)*
-Banjo "T" Fitting (or regular Banjo Fitting without cyclone)*
-1/8" ID Line (gun to adjuster)*
-Clippard MEV (or QEV of your choice)
-Pack of 1/8" barbs
-1/8" ID Line (gun to QEV)

*Parts provided by Tippmann


Step 1:  Notice the difference.

Here are the standard fittings and hoselines (1/16"):


1.) 1/16" Banjo "T" (10/32 threading)
2.) 1/16" Flow Control Adjuster (10/32 threading)
3.) 1/16" Banjo (10/32 threading)


Step 2:  Preparing to install.

Befor installing the parts onto the actual marker, there are a few things to connect and mess around with.

First, you should connect the 1/8" adjuster fitting to the Banjo "T" fitting using an appropriately sized ID hoseline (all provided by Tippmann).  Make sure to connect both fittings with the threading facing the same way. 


The QEV:

The QEV has no way to attach to the hoseline, so a barb must first be attached.  Screw a single 1/8" barb into the "Input" side of the QEV.  Now, you may hold the QEV near to the marker to determine the exact size of ID hose you must cut to attach the QEV to the Banjo "T".

After you have cut the proper length hose, attach it to the Banjo "T" with the threading of the "T" facing left and the threading of the QEV facing down.


Installing the Super R/T:

Now you will want to attach these parts to the actual marker.  Befor attaching the QEV, you may want to note that it will be facing the wrong direction when properly secured.  To solve this problem, many people file down the cyclone for it to fit properly, but I simply removed o-rings from the extra barbs (it comes in a pack of 5) and put them onto the QEV until it would secure in the proper direction.  Be sure to add a small amount of oil if you are doing this.

Now, simply make sure the stock fittings are removed, and secure the QEV, as well as attach both the rear adjuster and the Banjo "T".

This is what the setup should look like:


1.) 1/8" Banjo "T" fitting (10/32 threading)
2.) 1/8" Flow Control Adjuster (10/32 threading)
3.) QEV
4.) Exaust side of QEV
5.) O-rings

Here it is from a different angle:


1.) 1/8" Banjo "T" fitting (10/32 threading)
2.) 1/8" Flow Control Adjuster (10/32 threading)
3.) QEV
4.) 1/8" Barb fitting

Now you are essentially done the Super R/T + QEV mod on your A-5 or 98.

If you would prefer to find a Clippard parts dealer rather than purchase these parts over the internet (to avoid shipping etc.) do as follows:

1.) Go HERE
2.) Select your country.
3.) Enter other information it asks for (zip/postal etc.)
4.) Scroll down, and information on the nearest dealer will be displayed.

Now go get it tuned, and have some fun!
