Improves accuracy, comfort and CO2 performance. The complete kit includes the vertical adapter, expansion chamber, gasline, gasline fittings, Loctite thread sealant, and complete installation instructions.
The Tippmann Tippmann 98 Custom Platinum Expansion Chamber Kit is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.
Higher gas efficiency, more constant gas flow into the valve, looks cool.
Difficult to create a good seal against the valve
This will increase your gas efficiency and help keep a more constant flow of gas entering the valve.
Pros: Higher gas efficiency, meaning more shots per bottle. More constant gas flow into the valve, meaning, more constant ball FPS. It also looks cool, and the new location makes it so that you don't have to use the chamber as a grip, because it gets really cold as you shoot, if you're using CO2.
The expansion chamber helps any liquid gas, mainly CO2, to turn from liquid to gas before it gets into the valve. This is most applicable if you fire a bunch of shots quickly or if you're playing in colder weather. You WILL have a liquid gas issues if you play in colder weather, which will cause you to run through bottles very quickly, this will remedy that.
Cons: It's a little expensive. With the new valve system, sometimes its difficult to get the new style of gas line to seal against the valve. But if you can get it to seal, it'll work great.
I would recommend this. I think it's worth the price especially if you're playing with CO2 or in colder weather. The trick is getting it to seal against the new valve. Pretty much just tighten it up by and and jiggle the thing until it seals. Its not to hard.

Not a very large chamber
I love this product i really cant say anything bad about it... unless you are using more than semi-auto. Don't get me wrong, you need this if you are shooting co2 out of your marker, but it only has four chambers and thats not quite enough if you are using full auto or something like that. When I shot only semi auto it worked great but when i need full auto is would freeze up and its functionality would stop after about 200 shots. But if you get this you can add a larger chamber witch is what I did after i found out how it worked. I now have the same kit with an AG1 24 chamber on it and it purrs like a kitten. In the end though I would recommend getting Hpa before getting any of this. Look up this video and he explaines it pretty well. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=alc0650GY0w . I myself have just transfered over to Hpa, IT IS AMAZING!!! If you still want co2 though this is a must for any player.
If co2 is your thing this should be too. 10 out of 10 for EXCELlENT reliability with co2
