Techt or Lapco Ratchet mods, especially for the E-grip. Your Cyclone ratchet is made out of plastic, and it will break eventually. The Techt or Lapco mods are metal, so it won't break and will make your gun shoot even faster. There are more Techt/Lapco Cyclone mods, so look into them. There are endless choices for barrels and stocks.

Oh, don't forget to buy white lithium grease for the metal ratchets, otherwise the metal will grind on the plastic housing and cause more damage than good.

I'd go with the JCS Jet Click personally. They're the only company that's actually improved Tippmann's ratchet design.

I would go with a spring kit and barrel first. The barrel is obvious since the stock ones is pretty inadequate. Spring kits are cheap and if used properly can increase the marker's air efficiency a fair amount. Ideally you wan the stock adjuster as far out as possible and use the weakest spring that still allows you to reach your desired velocity. Any minor adjustment needed can be done with the stock adjuster or a rear velocity adjuster.

Then, if you plan on using CO2 a Palmer's Stabilizer can be nice to have. It gives you similar consistency to HPA, keep your velocity consistent all day long, and can help prevent shootdown.

Then I would probably look at cyclone parts, or perhaps a metal power tube. Unfortunately Tippmann is cheap and the plastic used for both parts has a habit of cracking under stress. They aren't necessary modifications, and not everyone has problems, but they are nice parts to have regardless. A metal power tube will even allow you to run liquid CO2 in the winter should you choose.

RT triggers and E-Grips depend on the player. I am more than satisfied with what a single trigger can dish out. A-5s actually have a pretty nice trigger for a blowback marker.
