First off the installation is not easy. No instructions come with it had to retrieve them from the web. Pins used are a very tight fit and I doubt I can remove them now that they are installed. I used a vise rather than a hammer. It's more controlled and less likely to damage the parts. I'm not sure if it is heavier than the stock components
I didn't experience a faster cycle rate. I don't see how it could.
I does seem more durable.
I usually have to rebuild my cyclone every year due to the excessive use of my Tippy. Used Angel Grease for the lube, sanded the piston arm to better fit, still seems tight though. Fired 400 rounds through it at full auto had 4 breaks none in the cyclone probably just the paint. Seems to have a little more force on the cyclone but not more speed.
Might be a good investment if you are looking for more durability. I'll update next season to see if it's life is longer than the stock parts. Does not increase cyclone speed. I reccomend a QEV for a more efficent cyclone.
Don't buy it unless you replace cyclone parts frequently.
