Custom E-bolt Project

So I'm in the process of compiling ideas for a fully custom Tippmann 98 e-bolt. I'm looking at making a custom 2 way ram but the issue I'm running into now is the electronics. I need to find a relatively small board to fit in the grip frame area along with a board and 9V battery. Anyone know of a cheap board that can run a 2 way ram? A one way e-bolt ram runs with a 3 way solenoid so I think I would need a 4 way solenoid correct?

For a Two way ram all that's needed is
Timmy board, or PM/DM board
Timmy noid
Cocker lpr on your air line/Asa

This is usualy the setup for a two way ebolt rig, also a long battery wire so the battery can just be placed in the foregrip of the tippy instead of in the grip

You could also look into the
Scenario Dreams t board it's the smallest board I know of

I plan on cutting the front grip off. Too far of a reach for a small profile.
For PM/DM boards I'm confused because there are so many plugs I don't know what they are all for. Anyone have any experience with a Mini Morlock board? I hear those are more universal than the SD T board.

Ok the more I look at the more I like the T Board. Its tiny and would fit perfectly inside the grip with a 9V and solenoid. Issue I'm having is finding wiring diagrams. I can only find ones that use a pancake noid. That won't work in my setup since I'm using a ram not a sear. And I can't find a difference between the open/closed bolt boards and 1 or 2 button boards. I wouldn't even know what a 98 would be considered. Closed I figure since you have to open the entire gun to get at the bolt?

98 is an open bolt, as the bolt is in the open position at rest. I believe the one/two buttons thing has to do with how the board is turned on and programmed. I have the two button closed bolt board for my cocker project, it uses a two button membrane pad for power and programming. One button boards might actually have a physical button, if you email scenario dreams they will respond pretty quick.

If you cut the front grip off..the gun will be awkward. The hopper is way up there so actually moving around that weight with a grip that is closer to the trigger frame would be really slow and unweildy.

Actually doesn't bother me. I rarely grabbed it in the past.

Good to know that it is open bolt. Guess now my job is to figure out how to wire it up.
