    Yep, torn mouthpiece. Could be the retention lip is somewhat sharp. I went through two mouthpieces before I figured out what was happening. Sanded the retention lip smooth with some 600 grit sandpaper and problem solved.

    Well, I did the suction test as @lexvil suggested and I was breathing almost normally so there was a rather big problem there. So I took a diaphragm off and replaced it with one from the 2 kits I got when I purchased the single tank kit. Screwed the cap back carefully and it passes the suction test. Oddly, the one I took off didn't seem torn or show any sign of damage.

    Going to try it tomorrow and we'll see.

    Thanks for the replies to you all. Greatly appreciated ! :)

    it could just be the first one wasn’t laying right. I had a slight leak air wise when doing the suction test. I readjusted the diaphragm and problem was solved. The 2nd never leaked or breathed wet then

    Well, I tried few times to reposition the first one and it didn't really worked. The main goal of trying the second diaphragm was to see if, indeed, the problem came from there. And it did.

    I went down to 100' under the second thermocline (40F) with the fixed second stage yesterday and it worked flawlessly.

    I am very happy I posted here because I was ready to ship it back tro D6 :)

    That was my problem under a fast current. The regulator was actually twisted 90 degrees when I turned my face against the current. Tightening the zip tie fixed it.
