TM L96 to 500fps?

I know this isn't the right forum but I couldn't see anywhere else that would be better to put it so i put it here, but feel free to move it if you need to. So anyways i want to get a TM L96 AWS because I absolutely love the look of the gun with the mag in the right place and all. But I would want to upgrade it to shoot around 500fps with a 150 spring, so I was wondering what the cheapest but still reliable way to go would be? Right now I know I would probably need a new hard hop up bucking, a spring, sears but I have yet to see anyone that sells a sear set for the TM L96.. And a new piston and maybe a cylinder? But any help is appreciated.

1. Intro post.
2. Grammar needs to improve (capitalize the "I"s).
3. Capitalize the first letter of a sentence. We are no longer in first grade.
Okay... Where do I put my intro post? I don't see anywhere on this site for introductions...

Still need to work on that grammar though.
Okay I have done everything you wanted me to do. And I have also figured out mostly what I need to make it shoot 500 FPS but I still have one question, what kind of hop up buckings work and what kind of springs work?

Well I just upgraded my friends TM l96 and what I can tell is that I don't like the mag system what is in the TM l96. It's like a gigantic dirt collector.

Cheap and reliable don't go together good. The trigger unite is made out of Pot metal or something cheap low-melting metal. I would replace the whole unite, like I did on my friends L96. I heard from a Japanese parts seller that the PDI and first factory parts don't mix together. So I went with full PDI. Just buy the PDI cylinder kit and the trigger unit. You may have to make some minor sanding to the L96 bolt frame that the new cylinder can fit in. Right now I'm worried for the cocking leaver.

Any type of vsr-10 spring will work, but you have to cut it down. I take out about 4cm out of the spring. It's your choice to buy either 9mm or a 7mm spring depending on the spring guide you bought.

I don't think you need a new hoppup bucking, but you may need a new hopup bucking "presser" or the little rubber part that is between the hopup arm and the bucking. I found out that the gun didn't give you enough curve when the hopup was maxed out, but it may be unique problem for this gun.
