Where you been That was a few years ago. If you can find the ACP products, do it. Your next best bet would be finding a shocktech or orange bolt (basically the same).

Rocket Valve >>>> EKO and not a huge price difference if your the kind of person getting custom parts made for an old AMG. If you go the EKO route then stop by the hardware store and find a set screw because the old brass screws dont work with the new valves.

Thank you guys for the help and if you have anymore suggestions where to get a bolt valve kit or new board I'm all ears
Well I'd recommend finding out what you want exactly then looking in the b/s/t and throwing want to buy thread up. I'd recommend you need barrel feedneck and a loader regardless of your mods, its no fun playing shake n' bake with a nicer gun and then not being able to hit anything because of a broken paint and a jacked barrel.
Barrel- 10,12,14" are the most common sizes you'll find, look for bore sizes .686-.690 for spyder. J&J and Custom Products are good starter barrels that will serve you well.
Feedneck- there are 3 types of spyder feednecks, you have a tabbed with holes. I'd recommend getting a Custom Chipley mills feedneck but you can get pretty much whatever, Trinity makes probably the cheapest, or you could even go through the effort to mod an EGO feed to it.
Next- reg/ valve/ springs
reg- amg's are the hardest to deal with so good job
Best valve give or take, you can try to find it cheaper if you want. If you call kingman directly they will sell you any parts you want so you can get an EKO valve and pin like the 2012 fenix use. Other cheap options are New designs and Magna port if you want to give them a go you'll get similar performance to the EKO.
springs- You will want a spring kit for the valve and the striker. They need to be lighter. IIRC the AMG has a goofy long front valve spring which will make finding one difficult, but the rocket valve doesn't need as its built in. You will need the rear striker springs for a light-med spring.
Details- opening up air and smooth operation.
-bolt, The bolt isn't going to be magic game changer, while you look for a newer delring bolt with 2 orings. Remove the venturi (reverse threads, loosen to the right) and if you have a friend with a lathe have them lighten everything on behind the the orings. This will give some gains near that aftermarkets bolts will improve only marginally.
-Bottom line- you need something to replace your bottom line. IF you get a basic ASA like off an autocoker and then get some macro line you can make it work. Otherwise, you will need a rail adapter for most on/off asa to mount. *I can't remember if the AMG has diagonal hole or inline holes in the bottome of the grip, but if they are diagonal you will need either an adapter or to drill and tap for 10-32 holes.*
Trigger- CP and possibly and used SPPS will be an addition.
Switch- anything under 100gram would be nice, SPPS had the best options and had 25g and 50g so maybe someone has those up for grabs. If not radio shack has roller micro switchs that might be lighter than the 250g switch the amg comes with. VS/RS and 08 and newer (pilot, electra, fenix) WILL NOT WORK)
Boards- Virtue board is probably the easiest to work with right now, but if you want Scenario dreams still has generic board you could inquire about.
Grips- trinity made nice sticky grips i'd recomend you pick up, otherwise you could make something out of lexan like everyone else.
Possible alternate route- Pick up a gen1 or gen 2 timmy or enough parts to make it work and roll with that. Honestly a viably cheaper option in some cases these days.
