There isn't one set of numbers for EI or PPS(that I know of), they are both overdose and then reset weekly regimes where it is easy to calculate the max possible accumulation. I wrote 'EI' in single quotes because Greggz dosing has migrated from any fixed set of numbers for years and he uses custom micros as well. The nitrates dosed for PPS pro can vary from as little as 7ppm to much more and I'd be surprised if EI didn't have a broad range as well those don't appear to be differentiators but I agree I'd rather have the experts chime in on the differences.
