    u install it urself... its VERY simple.

    there are many of instruction manuals online... do a search on google for flip top installation.

    ps2fliptop.com i think has it. and swap magic disc is just the swap disc.

    u only need to hire some mod chip installer if u gonna solder something.

    Depends on where you are, USA uses NTSC. I know gocybershop has them in kits or seperate. I think they are located in Canada though.

    Hey im in Canada and im going today to get my neo ripped out and magic installed, im assuming since I have a version 4 ps2 that i have to get magic 3.1 chip, I was just wondering im having tonnes of trouble getting my games to boot with my neo and gameshark now but when I get my magic chip I shouldnt have any problems right? I mean im burning them with dvd decrypter the way everyone says to on this forum. I just wanted ppls opinions of this chip and personal reviews, word of mouth is the best advertisement IMO. anything would be appreciated, thanx a lot, Giancarlo

    That top is for v9 & 10. Just make sure that's what you have. Use their version chart on that page to make sure. And yes get NTSC.
