Hi, last weekend I bought a flathead XP from my local zeagle dealer (DiveHouse - Buenos Aires, Argentina). He didnīt have any VI in stock, and since Iīm not doing cold diving itīs not a big problem.

My question is, the flathead VI environmental seal is just a cap (part number 341-0149-CL) hand tigth to the base of the first stage. Since itīs not an oil or alcohol chamber, how different is a XP from a VI? I was thinking of getting the environmental kit on the first service, but if itīs just a cup I donīt think it could make too much difference isolating the mechanics of the first stage.

Am I talking no sense? Whatīs the coldest working temp for each reg with and without the cup?

Thanks a lot... I already have my Ranger, Flathead XP and N2Ition... Iīm officially a member of the sect thanks to Scott excellent customer service and the members of SB.

Thanks Scott, I was going to ask ST guys if it was OK to post the link to SB since Jimmer explanation was very good and Iīm sure will be of help for more people.

By the way, if available, whatīs the environmental kit part number for the FH XP? 345-1030?
