ya they'll give it to me for free. But im lost again, sorry for sounding like a complete newbie. Ok so if it doesnt open enough to let 800psi through, then thats bad? I thought the idea was to lower it. I think after i understand this concept, im good

... well you might not be able to use the ION reg ... it might not fit your VA .... cuz of the weird threads that kingman have

Also if you wanta have an HPA tank you havta keep in mind .. that your gonna need a macroline hose kit for that reg of yours. You might needa replace your VA for the fittings too .. which means it would probably cost you about .. 25 bucks used which isn't really that bad ...

Also for better airflow so you can have more efficiency you can probably do some home mods .. as long as you have a drill, a lighter, and needle nose pliers ... but your also gonna need some sandpaper ... home mods don't cost much at all even if you don't have the material and with all home mods you could probably decrease your PSI to 500 or below if you do it right. I'v heard some people got down to 350 .. but im not so sure about that ..

Goodluck on your project

yes you can...it fits, I have mine mounted on my Xtra...see pic below

No he doesn't. The HPA will just screw right into the Bottomline CA adapter and at most...a 90* fitting that's metric female to starndard thread male...to connect the s/s hose to the reg

Look closely at the reg....

H3ctor...get a new VA that accepts a Low Pressure Chamber...then drill it out Otter style. Add a reg and you should be able to lower your input pressure to about 550 or so...go to Ottter's "Project LP" section...that all I did.
