Default Upgrading my Pilot

I have a pilot acs and am thinking of upgrading it, so I need some advice.

I am thinking of going with N2 and getting a regulator and a barrel, then later on a tboard.

Anyone have a similar setup? How is the performance?

Any links and advice would be appreciated as I dont really know where to start.

Thanks.

the first place you should go is to Otter's site and read up. There are a lot of upgrade tips there.

Here is a link

bible

Then come back here and post up your questions.

I have been reading everything I can find on that site.

I learned allot, but wanted some input from people who have actually upgraded their pilots.

Plus I dont think he has mentioned any of the E-markers, hopefully all the advice he gives also pertain to spyder e-markers.

But just to be sure I wanted to see if anyone here has any tricked out pilots.

I already have an electric hopper and am planning to get a new barrel. So what I have in mind are N2 systems, regulators, boards, and that sort of thing.

Thanks.

homer,

almost all Spyders are the same. So upgrades for a mech Spyder would pretty much be the same on an e-Spyder, minus of course getting an e-frame.

If you have no budget then you can upgrade like crazy... A regulator, new barrel, a feedneck, new ASA, HPA and even go low pressure.

The sky is the limit with your Pilot!!

Have fun upgrading and if you do have a budget let us know and we can give you more advise.

Thanks all.

Right now I am thinking of getting a micro flow regulator that comes with a N2 tank, Halo hopper, ceramic barrel, and maybe in the future a tboard and eyes.

If your planing on getting the T-board go ahead and plan for it, like when buy a regulator make sure if recharges fast so you can shoot fast, get something like the Palmer Stabilizer works w/ HPA or CO2. An assault block would also be good keeps air ready for firing and last but no least a CIP sweet spot trigger, better for walking.

I don't know where you'd find one of those... A Torpedo regulator IMO is one of the best for a Spyder. They have never let me down with CO2 or HPA, and they're cost effective.

Yep, this is the place to ask. I would get a barrel first. A nice 12-14" would do you wonders, as for brand I would look at either Smart Parts Teardrops or CP One Peices. They run about $30-35 used and shipped to your door.
