for the hopper get an eggy 3... its cheap and it keeps up with the pilot. i got it for like $60 online

for the feedneck i got a trinity t-lock feedneck, its low and it clamps good. it was like $25 but its kinda hard to find

for the barrel i got the j&j 16" ceramic barrel and its great .. it impossible to scratch it, its awesome. it was like $30

i also have dye sticky grips which arent really needed but i got for $10 at zephyrpaintball.com pretty cheap and comfortable

-J&J Ceramic Barrel 16"
-VL Evolution 3 w/ Ghetto Feed
-Trinity T-Lock Feed Neck
-Dye Sticky 3 Grip

I just bought a rocking trigger frame and rear cocking ACS bolt since I lost the top cocking rod. It pissed me off that it fell out after 3 years. I broke the top off the upper bolt stop so I just said screw it and decided to go with the rear bolt.

the order of my upgrades after buying the gun in 05-06 was
feedneck (trinity)
Apache LCD hopper

then now the rocking trigger since my stock e trigger for some reason started to drain my batteries at an ever faster speed. and I went rear cocking because of the cocking rod issue. I got the trigger and rod as a package from an ebay store for under a hundred bucks. not a bad deal

I might go nitrogen for air down the road, and my new harness was a package deal with a remote. Those little numbers will work with any future gun i own.

I think I might go for a new gun in a couple years since my wife would want mine since she likes to take out her anger on me with it.

MY order would be for upgrades. Feedneck (trinity makes a good one just make sure you order it with TABS should be less than $20), Hopper (Fasta is a good deal for 30+ balls a second for under a hundred dollars) , trigger frame (look for a rockers on eBay they go for just over a hundred and comes with a new bolt), and as the same time as you get the trigger go to compressed air (let your budget be your guide I would go 62cuin or larger). Then barrel, also let your budget be your guide.

I will say this eBay is a great source for some great deals for upgrade parts. Check it out.
