are you having issues with your co2 not expanding effiecntly? i use co2 at my churcch since its the only thing they fill and it works fine. i can empty a hopper and 4 pods walking as fast as i can with no issues. but i think if go low pressure or buy some low pressure parts it would be more effieinct, but dont take my word for it...

No real upgrades you can do to make the co2 work any better. You could try an expansion chamber but you are going to get minimal results.

you can buy a lot of upgrades to make your co2 better, but, in the end, it may be somewhat expensive and by the time you finish you could of bought n2. but here are the upgradeds for you co2:
anti siphon the tank: 7$(dosent let liquid in ur gun)
regulator: palmers stabilizer the best reg for co
2: equivalent to n2: 70$ or more, can get used for like around 70
those are the main upgades u need for co2: regulator and anti-siphon

you can find some cheap steel HPA tanks, new for like 50-60 bucks.
if u look, you can find those used, for cheap

n2 isn't available in his area like mine so n2 really isn't an option so just go to the torpedo or the stabilzer for a reg and anti siphon your tank and shoot ttill your hearts content
If you get a reg your going to need to get a new VA like a Check-it assault block or the one made by Trinity.
