WE baby Hi-capa 3.8 upgrade questions

Ok so I have recently acquired a TSD/WE baby Hi-capa 3.8 with Caspian trades. I've searched through here and google but can't figure a couple things out. Mainly I am going to want to upgrade mostly the internals and possibly the slide in the near future but can't find info regarding upgrades for the 3.8, would parts for a 4.3 or a 5.1 work on a 3.8? I like the look of what I have now but a few mods couldn't hurt.

Any help and/or suggestions are greatly appreciated.

p.s. Here's what I have to work with:

You have a solid base which is sweet for you.

And you know what thats actually not a 3.8 base its a 5.1 base but with a 3.8 slide

So basically you can put any TM parts or you can even put on a TM Slide with TM internal

Although you do not have a TM middle metal frame you probably won't hear a crisp loading sound like you would with a TM frame but with that WE a TM slide with TM internals will sound much better than the 3.8 one you have

That handle you have also looks like a TM one or maybe a really good clone of it

so 5.1 internals would work with this? All I really know about this gun is that it's 100% stock. This is my first GBB and aside from the basics like how to load it, fill it with gas (which will be propane once I get the adapter) rack the slide engage the safety and pull the trigger I know squat about this thing.

hahaha Don't tempt me with the bank card idea . I do have a spare one here. I'm looking at spending around $200-$300ish but that total is definitely up for changes. I want it to be tactical but with some definite spiffyness.

Are you just interested in changing the appearance or are you more after performance?

Mostly performance, but I would not be too opposed to changing the aesthetics of it as long as it still looks like it is a Hi-capa to some degree and is still tactical in application.

- kind of a toss up between power/velocity and cycling speed
