Question 2 . yes
Your last question . It depends . Can your marker operate at 600psi ? that is just something you will have to try out and see for yourself . Take for example a stock A5 . Right out of the box it probably won't function correctly below 700psi . With a few mods though ; like polished interns , high flow fittings etc... you can reduce operating pressure down between 500 - 600psi without a low pressure kit . Hope this helps

Apparently you need a gap of at least 200psi to maintain airflow so you don't starve you marker from air between the reg's .
On the A5 you are actually polishing the inside of the reciever halves where the hammer O-ring , front bolt O-ring make contact . I don't recommend steel wool because the finish won't be that great and there are better options that will put an almost mirror like finish . I used 1000 grit automotive sandpaper to remove the overspray and finished with aluminum polish and 2000 grit sandpaper . If you have another type of marker you might want to ask around if anyone has tried this .
High flow fittings increase the airflow of smaller pneumatic systems . They are commonly used as the fittings to supply air to the pistons on autococking markers . For the A5 they will be used to replace the banjo fittings on the cyclone . Palmer Pursuit makes a preassembled kit for the A5 .Just about any paintball store that handles autocockers should have these fittings available . Your best bet would be
scroll down to the bottom of the page .
To see the A5 QEV kit go to their homepage then click on tippmann parts .
The only advantages of a red power tube are the teflon insert to hold the velocity screw in place and the aluminum body will not crack if you get liquid C02 in the marker . It does not do anything to improve the airflow .
