when you mod them, you have to connect the valves to one blowgun, but instead of a blowgun, you should use a ball valve. they would open faster, for better performance.

is this true???

Indeed, modded sprinkler valves are much better.

Pretty damb good. But you dont need the hose on the fron of the chambers. I found another way of how both chamber fill up at the same time.

no i know that modded valves are better but is it true that running the modded valves air hose line to a ball valve is better than running it to a blow gun?

Well you only need to fill up one chamber and it will go through the hose on top of the sprinkler valve, go into the next valve, go through the equalisation hole and fill the chamber.
