Default Optimum nozzle size for an Arctic Blast?

I'm planning on drilling out the nozzle on my Iron Man 2. What size drillbit do you guys recommend, and how much of a range increase should I expect?

did not think about this yet, you could double the diameter and this should increase range a little bit, 1 meter, I would say. But since the PC is rather small(250ml), I would not go much further than 3 X:: !!!

How big is considered 2.5x, and how much shorter would the shot time be?

hm, a 2,5 X:: CPS output with the PC of the Flash Flood will have an output of 120ml/s, so shoot time will be about 3-4 seconds in opposite to 7-8 seconds

Default Re: Optimum nozzle size for an Arctic Blast?

I'd use a bit that is just large enough to not completely damage the nozzle and leaves enough plastic on to control the stream effectively, at least for the FF. Not sure how this applies to the AB and the AB's limitations for such a nozzle.

I'd limit it to 3-4x (about 3-4mm), as the ball valve behind it is probably too small to push out anything larger. You'll also have to drill very carefully; lamination and range are reduced in such a mod.
