Iam planning on buying a soldering iron from www.modchip.ca and then buying a xecuter 2.3 lite or 2.3 pro and my question is do I need anything to solder the chip in or does it come with it? Also which chip would probably be the easiest to solder, I've never soldered anything in my life so keep that in mind.

Dont buy modchip.ca soldering iron, the tip is tooooo big. Go to Radio Shack and buy their 15W iron...with an extra fine tip(pencil thin). This one is better and costs about $20

the 15w iron at radio shack is $7.99 lol not $15. and it depends on what version xbox you have. i had a 1.0 so i used to solder already there.
