    well im new to this site and alot has crossed my mind...i would love to mod my ps2 with a modchip but i dont trust myself installing it on my own....i dont know of ANYONE who can do it for me so im basically screwed....and im guessin its like impossible to get it done online since id have to ship out the whole ps2 system and stuff like that.....also anyone know how hard it is to swap out your whole ps2 into one of those flip top clear cases??

    swapping the top half to a new fliptop is easy, but swapping the bottom means taking apart the whole ps2.

    Sending out your console is what most people end up doing.

    FreakSho, check the Modchip Link in my sig. It's stickied at the top of the forums for people like yourself. Read it and then make an informed decision.

    I would go with Norcalmods.com I have had him install 2 chips and just look at his installation pictures... they are a piece of art. My modchip works perfect and I'm getting a Crystal Chip 1.1 installed right now, it even auto patches games for online support.

    Yeah good decision. The Crystal Chip 1.1 is a fine chip. Spedmetal is reputable, so I think you made a wise decision. Cheers!
