First thing you're gonna wanna do is join Automags.org for more info. They have articles and guide on setup and tuning, a virtual museum of Airgun Designs Products, and it's a great community all around. You'll find vendors who specify in AGD products, as well as people making all new Automag products. Lots of people willing to help!
You could go a few directions with this marker. No matter what if it doesn't have Level 10, you should get a kit in there ASAP. I'd say it's probably worth it to get your board flashed to XMOD 1.8 which I'm assuming it is not.
Right off the bat many people would "upgrade" to an aluminum body - the low end is roughly $80 for a used AGD ULE body (angel detente and feedneck, 'cocker barrel). The high end would be a rail/body combo that offers the same performance, maybe an extra detente, but really more of a "wow" look (Karta, Shockwave, Phoenix, Dallara, Chord, IT, ect) - you're looking at $200-$400 for many of these bodies and rails.
You might consider looking into an X-valve. For starters, if you don't have a Level 10 bolt kit yet it will include it, but it also reduces the weight of the marker (all aluminum) and looks cleaner. Otherwise it's functionally almost identical to the valve you have there.
Definitely make sure your PE tank is a minimum of 800psi output, but preferably 900+
