Or you could just do this. I bet the Ego shoots great as it is.

When you feel the need to upgrade, just make it a newer marker ad skip adding things. If you picked up an 07 up ego you'd notice a decent weight difference and to be honest I think the newer egos are significantly more comfortable than the 05/6s. If you buy anything for the gun buy a barrel kit you can keep when you sell the gun.

I would also go the route of a new marker. Play with that one for a while and get some good playing time with it. After that you can look at trading it up for a newer marker. If you save the money you would spend on upgrades you can afford a better trade.

Don't worry about upgrading it. It works fine as is, just save your money for paint.

If you must upgrade, the generally good upgrade on any marker is a nice trigger.

I shot a chunky number of upgraded pre-07 Egos.

Looks like the Violent or Kila Bolt and Eigenram seem to make for an epic combination.

Other than that, you have a proper board and an upgraded frame...

I guess if you can find the almighty Lucky Air Assist Valve (LAAV), you can do that as well and come out winning just that much harder. (not as in winning games... more sheeny train of thought involved in statement.)

Meh, theres nothing thats going to make enough of a difference to be worth any money. Maybe a tad quieter and a tad less jolt per shot from the ram and whatnot but honestly the guns probably so broken in by now setting up the regs and running it will most likely the best bet. Basically if your not shooting people out with it, practice and get better dont mess with the gun unless something goes wrong

Just use the money to go play. Upgrade after a long relationship with the Ego.
