clear coat help

im running a devilbiss starting line 1.5 tip, and i have so far gotten great resaults. it shoots great for a nice wet base coat, but the clear goes on a bit heavy, im shooting omni high solids clear at 4:1:1 and im shooting at a range of 45 -55 psi and running full fan backed off about two turns seems to be set pattern for wet coat, and i have to run the fluid supply at about 5-1/2
turns from full closed other wise it sprays way to wet, less turns is to dry and would take to long to coat. no matter what speed i run. im looking for i guess a little more control. should i increase air psi or change tip size, and if its a tip size any suggestions. ( lowering tip size is what im thinking ) because recently i sprayed some of the same clear at the same mix out of my detail gun with a 1.0 tip and got a beutifull wet coat and it cured great no problems. this is why im thinking a smaller tip size. but i would like some suggestions.
thanks
