I made an adapter for my Ebolted X7, but only because it was low pressure.
To use a feedneck you have to remove the 'Hook' from the shell. That is pemanent,
and to go back to a Cyclone you'd need to buy a new receiver half.
I would stay with the cyclone.
 
Steel frame, the elbow is 5/8" copper 90o elbow threaded for an Ion Q-lock.

Something like my AKA5 w/DYE Rotor?




Simple Mod I put together a year ago by using Qloader Feed Mods for the A5/X7, Locking Feed Neck and Gorilla Glue.

Oh, Great! 
I'll try this, you used the adapter, and the 90 degrees q loader elbow? 
or just a random elbow?

I use to have the Qloader on my A5 a couple of years ago (pic below), so I took the parts I had, Gorilla Glued them together with a Clamping Feed Neck I bought from a Pro Shop.

Before you begin, you do realize that the Feed Arm and both the Tabs have to be Permanently Removed from the X7 Body.

So if you dont have a problem of removing the Tabs and the Feed Arm, then go here
http://www.qloader.com/upgrades.html and order the following

X7 Feed Adapter

90* Elbow Feed

A Clamping Feed Neck of your choice.

Gorilla Glue

Dremel Tool or similar with a Grind Tip to grind away excess Gorill Glue when its been dried.

A regular pair of Pliers and snap them off.

i managed to get the adapter and 90 degree elbow on with some super glue, i was wondering what type of clamping feed neck would be best to attach onto the 90 degree elbow and a dye rotor?
