Marq Engines

Is the SC engine really worth buying over a PE or stock engine?

I had a Marq 6 with a PE which was nice, but it wasn't really something I needed. I don't play long games, and I don't really worry about running out of air in between games.

I wouldn't pick up a pe as they had problems with the bolt snapping off

Either stock or supercharger

Stock is smoother though. So I would go with stock. That's just me

I've heard the stock is smoother, but I haven't had enough games to really know the difference. I thought they fixed the bolt snapping off a long time ago?

Sounds like I'll just stick with the stock engine. I think I gotta send in the Marq to get the LPR slot milled in

From what I have seen the supercharger is a bit finicky at times ( the ones in houston I have come across)

I would suggest keeping to stock and investing in the lurker spring to make it even smoother. Also adjust your ram properly and do not let it stop on the bolt but on the brass bolt stop in the back

I believe the supercharger engine was the fix to all problems of the pe engine.

Woaaah. Only a dwell of 6 o.o Impressive.

Do you know if you can do the Vice method of setting the LPR pressure (turn off and turn on until it can cycle).

that is basically like sweetpotting an autococker think lpr as ivg

the dwell of 6 means nothing ..dwell numbers change from gun to gun(manufacture wise) as some guns use different noids which react differently so all it is is just a number for that line of gun

Sweet okay. For some reason the last time I wanted to do that, everyone was saying don't do it.

No, don't do that. The Marq Engine is a balanced poppet valve while the Timmys (& autocockers) are not. Balenced valves cannot really be sweetspotted because the valve isn't directly closed by the air source. It's best to just set your LPR ~80psi and leave it. You might find your particular Marq shoots most consistent at ~75 psi or ~85 psi but 80psi is a good place to start.

Yea, I just don't wanna drop 40 bucks again for an LPR tester :| Really don't understand why they cost so much if they're so important.

Thats why.....

Why do some printer cartridges cost as much as the printer? Because you NEED THEM!
