Anyone modded a QEV for flow before?

Take a dremel and grind them out. I see nothing that would affect the valve's strength by
removing the flow restrictions

Dremel wouldn't do the job except for a little sanding down. Had to use a drill, which was pretty dodgy because a few times it jumped and almost took a chunk off the seat/port.

So far so good, using a mirror to look in to the barrel port I think the diaphragm is flexing a little bit more but all seems well. I might take out the last two supports and see how that goes.
