The feedneck that connects my hopper to the gun is kind of difficult to get tight. Is there an aftermarket out there that is pretty good. I really do not like to use tools to crank it down.

The Tadao board is a drop in replacement, it works with the stock eyes.

They use the same Spyder threaded barrels as all Spyder guns.
The VS3 however limits you to a select few choice of barrels. The shroud doesn't allow enough room, a possible solution is to file it down. I'm gonna try to get a list of all barrels that will fit the VS3 without modding the shroud. Pm me barrels that you know will work.
Barrels that fit the VS3:
1. J&J Ceramic
2. Python Barrel Kit
4. 07 Freak backs produced after June 07
You can use either a direct mount or dovetail mount (rail). The dovetail mount looks much better.

Trinity Sick Body-
This is for nothing but aesthetic value. Alot of guys have problems with them leaking air. I have yet to run into this problem and have put over 10 of them on VS2/3. Trinity supplies you with new o-rings to go onto the valve and front block, use them along with the dow55 they provided. Do not put dow55 on striker or bolt o-ring only on valve and front block o- rings. Also make sure when your putting the front block on to press it against the body as your tightening the screw.
Color Body Kits and Barrel Tip-
They include feed neck clamp, metal eye covers, low pressure chamber, foregrip riser, and striker plug. http://www.spyder.tv/section/products/vs_series/accessories.html
The barrel tip is bought seperatly. http://www.spyder.tv/section/products/vs_series/accessories.html
They are Ion threaded so any Ion thread will work with the VS

The valve springs in the VS can use any compact spyder valve springs.
There are no main springs made for the VS2/3. If you find that your main spring is weak, you can cut yourself shims out of cardboard. Another alternative is to use flat washers as a shim. Be sure to chronograph your gun after you mess with the springs.
What You'll Need to Upgrade Your Regulator
You either need a Trinity front block or regulator adapter. You'll then need a new inline regulator. Since your current regulator is also your asa your gonna need a new asa as said before you can either get a rail type or direct mount. To hook everything up you'll need macro fittings and macroline . These will vary depending on your setup if you need 90* elbow or straight fittings. You cannot reuse the current fittings because they are metric threads and most products use s.a.e. threads.
I like the Redz clamping necks, cheap to for a quality neck.
