if i call them, do i need to have my gun registered? because i bought my gun used, and i don't have any warranty for the gun....

also, can i use any QEV, or does it have to be the one you specified? because i was thinking of using one for an ion or some other gun. are all QEV's created equal or not?

If you are referring to Tippmann, NO, just tell them that you are considering switching from CO2 and and ask if any changes have to be made to the marker. They will tell you no and to use a HPA tank. you will then tell them that you have tried this and the RT works fine but the cyclone will not feed. They will then inform you that you will be sent upgrade parts in the mail. The parts that they will send will not be complete. (at least in my case) I had to buy the QEV and barb (which were my intentions anyway) from a local Clippard dealer here in Puerto Rico. The piece of hose was free since the dealer used to play paintball years back and freaked out when he saw my marker with all of the mods that I have.

same thing happened to me.  And no, this won't be stickied, a moderator asked me to put it into the upgrading sticky thingy and it should be at the end of it.

The low pressure QEV kit come with 3/32 barbs and hose. The High pressure QEV kit comes with 1/16 barbs and hose. To make super RT you need 1/8 hoses and barbs. So if you are plan making super RT neither kit will work for you. Just buy the QEV by itself and buy a 1/8 barb and some 1/8 hose.

500 psi is fine. $9 is about the going price of an average QEV. Plamers however do sell a new QEV for $20 I believe, it is suppose to be able to activate at lower psi. This might help when you are running low on air or if you have a low pressure kit on your gun. You could also (if you have a regulator on your gun) turn down your regulator and be able to operate your marker at lower psi.

Also if you are planing on buying a QEV it would be a good idea to buy the adjustable one from Palmers or else your QEV might face the wrong direction and you would have to put little o-rings on it.

ok, i understand and agree with upgrading the banjo fittings and lines for the cyclone feeder, now my question is.... what do i need to order to go from the gun to the feeder? which fitting specifically, is it just a 1/8 90degree banjo fitting with 10/32 thread? would homedepot or lowes have this? also, what is the techinical name for the QEV and where can i get the line from locally?

I don't understand your question clearly but let me try anyways.

It depends if you have Egrip or RT. If you have Egrip you need a 90 degree banjo running from the gun to the QEV (which is connected to your cyclone). Now to determine your hose and barb size. If you have a Low Pressure Kit on your gun it is recommended that you go with a bigger hose. You can buy the LP QEV kit (barbs and hose are 3/32) from Palmers which I believe will come with everything you need or you can do like I did and get everything 1/8 so you have bigger hoses.

If you have RT and already have the LP hose kit from Tippmann than all you need is the QEV, a 1/8 barb, and a small piece of 1/8 hose. Maybe a file too. Screw the barb into the QEV and run the hose to the 1/8 banjo T that Tippmann provided. Barbs my be too long so just grab your file and file them down. Keep in mind when buying parts to get everything is 10/32 thread. 

QEV stands for Quick Exhaust Valve. Home Depot or Lowes will not have what you are looking for. Find a local Clippard dealer http://www.clippard.com/distributors/.

no standard hardware stores will have any of this.  Like said above and in my post, look for a clippard distributor.

Thanks to whoever stickied this :D
