SP-8 vs. SP-1

The SP-1 has bolt-out back, just like the Vibe. The SP-1 is to the Vibe as the SP-8 is to the Ion. Same internals. So the SP-1 will be easier to maintain, and if you think that bolt-out-back isn't a big deal, just think of the stress you're putting on all the wires/connections every time you have to take the entire frame apart so that you can remove the bolt.

Yeah, I think pretty much all the recent SP spool valves use the same bolt, more or less. But why would you want a firebolt? It doesn't give you a significant advantage over the stock bolt. Get an L7v2 or a Hollowpoint, they're much lighter and efficient.
I have an L7v2, though the Hollowpoint is lighter. So light, in fact, that they don't recommend you use it with a QEV because it's too fast.
