What is a good operating pressure for the ION?

well that depends on what upgrades you have for it, the dwell its set at etc.

normally a good OP for a stock Ion with stock dwell is around 160-180 PSI

with a new bolt and QEV you can drop the PSI though, mine runs from 90-120 PSI with a QEV and Hollow point bolt

I run 135 psi with a QEV. Just don't go over 200, be4cause it's not good on the hoses or solenoid. but it can handle up to about 215, though it's about like running old oil in your car.

It shouldn't run over around 180-190, that's where mine has always set. As well as every other Ion I have ever seen. What FPS are you shooting at 220 psi?

I run at ~110 psi for 280 fps. Stage 5 body, Spitfire board, Clippard QEV, L6v2 bolt, Cp reg, 14" Freak barrel with AA tip and I only use Hatersauce for bolt lube

Then someone's doing something wrong because anything over 200 psi should :

1. blow the inner hoses right off the noid barbs, or;
2. blow the noid Oring/seal.

Remember that not all Ions are alike. You and I could have consecutively serial numbered markers with identical upgrades and they will behave differently, even at the same settings.

If you had to jack your psi so high to achieve that fps, you likely needed more "break-in" time for the components; had a dwell that was way too low for your upgrades; used a macroline with the smaller (more restrictive) inner diameter; had the wrong or blocked QEV; blocked noid/barb; problem with the bolt; or didn't maintain it properly.

Barring any one (or a combination of) them...I don't know what else to tell you.

just bump up the dwell about 5 clicks and you should be able to lower it down to safe operating pressure
