if you set the regulator to 100 PSI, and it maintains at least 90 PSI at the regulator gauge. then your impact gun is the problem.. lots of the impact guns are over rated, especially the china imports.. it takes a pretty big gun to pull 500+ ft/lbs.. realistic numbers for a 1/2" drive is 3-400 ft/lbs.. don't start seeing 500+ ft/lbs till you get into 3/4" and 1" drive impacts
