Prolite Valve Stop..Ditch it!!

Wow....
I just got off the phone w/Tippmann service dept.  I was having trouble
with air leakage because the front valve plunge was pressing in the power
tube bar. This happened because valve plunge is a little long on my new
valve ( threads went on the old one.). I would have to push a little to
seat the valve stop properly, thus causing the valve to be depressed & leak.
Anyway... the guy at Tippmann tells me to just pitch the valve stop all
together!!! He said it will incease velocity as well!
This worries me a little..I don't know why..it just does.
Any comments?

The valve stop (the little square piece of metal that falls out
every time you take the gun apart :), isn't really necessary.  I
guess its real purpose is to extend the life of the valve body by
keeping it from slaping around in the main body.
