Strengths: The tornado valve for the autococker is a great valve. It does everything AKA says it will do. I have the valve installed in the custom autococker I built and it runs between 150 and 200psi. The efficiency is also great. I can get about 1400 rounds from a 68ci 3000psi tank. With this valve, velocity adjustment is also easier as you rely less on spring tension and more on input pressure. AKA's installation instructions are top notch, just make sure you follow them.
Weaknesses: The only bad thing, and it's not really bad is that you can't just drop this valve in and expect it to work. If you don't have a consistent, high flow regulator and high flow bolt, and yellow nelson springs then it will be difficult to get really low pressure operation. Also, one thing that's not mentioned in the instructions is that if you turn up the pressure too high, the velocity will drop significantly. With my guage reading 400psi the gun would only shoot 175 but when I dropped the pressure to 150-200 and turned the velocity adjuster in one turn it shot 298.
Conclusion: This valve is absolutely worth the money. I got mine through Skanline for about $75. It's rare these days to find something that actually does what is advertised. The AKA tornado valve is the exception. It delivers extremely low pressure, velocity consistency, and awesome efficiency. With a little time and patience, your gun will rock, just like mine.
