Default Regulators for my Pilot

Hi all, I have an electic hopper, and a J&J ceramic barrel and crossfire tank in the mail.

Now I am looking for a good regulator, any sugestions?

Also is it true you may have to do some drilling or buy another part in order to replace the stock expansion chamber?

so far have put on a torpedo regulator and changed the V/A with a stock spider unit- i opened up the passageways and drilled and tapped for a gauge. check the thread here to see pics

Thats a nice looking setup you have there.

Is it necessary to drill or replace the VA?

The stock V/A passages are way smaller than an aftermarket Check IT, i kept the stock green colour appearance by using a V/A off another spyder that happened to be green that would accept a regulator, took a bit of drilling/dremelling work, The check it blocks are also 15 degree forward tilt and come in either black or chrome, the other reason i decided to do all the work was cause i shoot left and can see the gauge, where as the check its mount a guage on the oppposite side. I HAVE A TLX with a check it V/A on it, so was able to compare both stock and aftermarket that way

Personally I wouldnt want to go through all that. ....I am a lazy lazy man.

So what setup would require the least effort and money (I am cheap as well).

Is there any regs that will fit a stock pilot?

LOL i thought i was lazy too, but i have a well equipped but messy garage, you need to get rid of the stock V/A on the pilot(need one that a co2 bottle or regulator would screw into) nothing can be done with the stock pilot one i think, for my money i would buy the Check it or a trinity, one tilts the reg forward and the other backwards towards the trigger

As for regulator some allow the air to come in through the bottom and some through the sides(Torpedo Reg).

The other thing i picked up was a spring kit and am going to mill my valve then will be done the low pressure conversion

I was wondering for those of you doing low pressure set up is a custom products regulator for compressed air good enough?

Also if not cp is the torpedo good for compressed air?
Otters help recomended!
