Y board Eggy can maintain about 16-17 bps consistantly with new batteries. With mods, probably 17-19.

What mods would you recommend to do on it??

I don't recommend any of them. Seriously, do you actually shoot faster than 16-17 bps? Even in tournaments, you're capped at 15 bps, so the Egg is fast enough for that.

However, if you want to try modifying it, there's the paddle mod where you cut some of the paddles in the loader, and then insert needles or something stiff within the paddles. Then there's the RC car motor mod. You'd have to do some searching for all of these. Just remember, once you do it, you can't fix it back (without buy new parts, that is.)

Why not just spring for a new Z board? When they first came out, they were only like 20 bucks. They can't be that much more now.

Lots of people cut some of the blades off of the impeller to lighten them. Personally I don't but if you do, leave three, not two. The mod I think is best for y boards is the removal of the speed adjusting pot. That knob assembly, even adjusted all the way fast, slows the hopper down slightly over it not being there at all....removing it will allow the hopper to feed as fast as a y board can. Other than that, leave it the way it came and enjoy!

The only mod I did to mine was the battery harness mod.

That, however, is an excellent mod because of the battery door issue. However, I don't think it increases speed, unless you did the 3 battery mod?

I am still waiting on definitive long-term results from the 3 battery mod. I can't see, with the cheapest-parts-available mentality, that the motor can withstand that much overvoltage with sustained use.

Agreed, though what little I did see on the mod says that, at least for the shorter lifespan of the motor, it was somewhat faster. Who really knows since I can't find any real results usually on a modification...

And since every tourney in existence (hyperbole is my best friend) caps at 15bps, who really needs a loader that does 25+
