Well what does he want to upgrade on it? I.E. range, accuracy, rate of fire, etc.

Anything really. He's looking to really beef it up on all levels. Lets start with the motor and/or gearbox I guess.

I would recommend replacing the hop up nub and upgrading the inner barrel (6.03).

The stock motor is ok, but better ones are out there. A mmosfet, dean's connectors, and better wiring to round it out.

My team uses two of these, and we have four floating around.

Some compatibility info for the A&K M60:

Short motor
V2 M16/M4 Tapet Plate
V2/V3 Gears
V2 AV latch
V2 Spring Guide
V2/V3 cylinder head
Proprietary M60 nozzle (Although you can find replacements at some of the big online shops)

The piston will be the first part to die in those gearboxes, although if left alone they're surprisingly durable. Quick back-of-napkin math estimates that Forge, my support gunner, went through a staggering 250,000 rounds before his died. If that sounds high, remember that he used 37,000 rounds at DPG opening day alone -- We kept the bags to do a count.

The springs and pistons will die first, generally. Most of the failures on our team stem from a stripped piston or a broken spring resulting in a jam and then a stripped piston. I recommend a nylon piston with mostly non-metal teeth -- I use the single metal tooth option. This helps your geartrain survive when something goes wrong, and leads to replacing a piston instead of gears or a pinion.

Your rate of fire should be very good with just an 11.1. We remove the built-in ROF adjustment and short the two wires to result in always-on full speed.

FPS is easy to adjust as a result of the quick-change spring system. Keep on top of this, as the springs do wear out and break with heavy use. (And if you're not using it heavily, you're using it wrong.)

As a side note, feeding can be very problematic with those box mags -- Sometimes cutting the canvas around the mag box where the feed tube comes out can help straighten the spring tube and prevent jams. We generally yank off the entire box mag mount and fabricate something new with angle iron to hold the box in a more stable position.
