Question about Tippmann 98 custom?

So I got a Tippmann 98 custom for Christmas one year. Is this gun purely meant to be customized. Because it seems very basic when you use it as is. Like 1 shot at a time, nothing rapid fire or anything. So I'm thinking customizations are required to get the full potential?

Also where can I find the proper diagram for putting the gun back together. With this one I took it apart when I got it thinking it needed to be lubed, ended up screwing something up to the point where it wouldn't fire. I took it back to the store claiming it didn't work originally. Got another one, but now it has been a couple years since I last used it and I'm concerned the 0-rings and anything else may be dried out. It really bugs me to take it apart because I don't want to mess this one up. No taking it back this time. Is my best bet to have a shop do it?

Manuals available on Tippmann's website, Download and/or print the manual and study it so you know your gun inside & out. Maintenance is easy to do once you educate yourself.

Use paintball gun oil, a few drops in the asa (where the tank goes) then dry fire (fire without paint) into a towel (make sure the barrel is off). That'll cycle oil through the internals so you won't have to take it apart. If there's a leak, then an o-ring or two may need replacing, just replace them. If you got the gun new, it should've come with a parts kit containing spare o-rings. If not, buy them at the shop.

You can install an E-Trigger (electronic, has firing modes but uses a battery) or a Response Trigger (gas-assisted so no battery, but no firing modes) so you can shoot faster. If you get either of those, you'll want an electronic hopper to keep up with the rate of fire so you don't chop paint.
