Default Internal Upgrades

What can you guys recommend for internal upgrades? I already have the external upgrades like a hopper, HPA tank, clamping feed neck, barrel. I feel as though I should upgrade the internals, and I'm talking stuff like boards etc.

T boards are nice upgrades, as well as get a new bolt, and a new lighter striker. Spring kits if you dont have them

A valve would be nice as well.

I have a whole list of them in my sig, the Ultimate Resource Thread. Check in there!

I personally think going low pressure is one of the best things you can do to a Spyder. The gun just plain shoots nicer. Read up on Otter's Spyder pages. You can start out with a new bolt and valve. Be forewarned, upgrading is a disease, just ask MVS1 or VWJimmy. And you'll never get out of the gun the money you put into it. The good part is the excitement of putting it together and tuning it. I don't know how many times I've let people at the field check out my gun & I always offer to let them shoot it; then when I tell them it's a Spyder they're surprised. It's pretty cool to have what's considered to be an entry level marker keep up with upper end ones. I've never gotten a gun and kept it stock, it's just varying degrees of upgrades.

^^AMEN to that brother. And it's a kick watching the reaction of people I loan it to, they can't believe it was a pilot, still is I guess, just a lot harder to recognize as one.

Adding eyes is nice but also a lot of work and potentially a lot of additional expense...with a good loader and a well conditioned ACS bolt you'll be good to go. However if you like tinkering w/stuff then go nuts.
Honestly since your looking at upgrading the internals I would first go after the following...
Reg, Front-Block, High-Flow valve and valve pin, aftermarket striker, a spring kit to get everything dialed in and an on/off w/purge ASA.

If you watch the BST close you'll be able to find most of these items fairly reasonable.
