As the title says i'm looking to upgrade my CXP-16 as i'm starting to get seriously into airsoft. Last Chrono'd it was shooting around 280 on .2s (with a 1600mAh 9.6V nunchuck battery) which is pretty pathetic and i've just noticed upon closer inspection on the ICS website that imports into the U.K get automatically downgraded to get beneath the 350fps legal limit..... probably should've checked that pre-purchase. They did this by instead installing a M100 spring (instead of an M120) and an Infinite 2500 Motor (instead of a Turbo 3000). Given this, does it mean that if i were to upgrade the motor/spring I wouldn't have to get better gears, spring guides etc since the ones inside are already designed to work with a better spring/motor?
Anyway, i'd like to upgrade it both internally and externally to get as close to 350fps as possible while also increasing range. I don't mind about increasing ROF as it's already quite high (don't have a specific number but it's faster than any other stock AEG i've seen)
What internals would you guys suggest getting (I don't really have a budget as i'll be running this as my main for quite some time), bearing in mind that it has a split-gearbox design (would this affect compatibility with different internals?).
From what i'd gathered key things to get are:
a 6.03 Tightbore barrel
a better spring and motor (if i get an M120 will it likely be too powerful and go over the 350fps limit?)
metal bushings? (how do I know if I already have these since i'm not yet comfortable taking apart the gearbox)
A large problem is that I can't for the life of me find a concise part list of what's already inside it (as shown by my not noticing the downgraded internals) this means that a large number of the potential upgrades could already be stock (metal bushings/spring guide, piston head etc.)

Ignore the two-tone..... I wasn't old enough to apply for UKARA until now so I had to make do......
What externals would be compatible with it? For example, i'd been looking into getting http://www.actionhobbies.co.uk/Ares-Octarms-Tactical-Keymod-Rail-Handguard-12-Black_A21AFH.aspx#.WOpjrWnyuUk to replace the stock RIS/RAS kit and http://www.actionhobbies.co.uk/ICS-MTR-ABS-Carbine-Stock-Black_A21GTU.aspx#.WOpj_WnyuUk to replace the current crane stock (currently where the battery resides so how would I go about rewiring it to accomodate the new stock?)
As you can tell i'm very new to teching so any tips/advice you can give would be really helpful.
