Hi! I want to get an xbox and I am wondering is there anyone out there who knows a place where they can install an X-ecuter 2 chip and replace the harddrive with a 160gb for a fee? If that cannot be done, is it possible to put in a Matrix chip and a 160gb harddrive by myself? If so, how can I do that? Thanks for any advise.

If you want to do it yourself check out the tutorial here

Maybe some people who have had good luck with companys modding the Xbox will post here.

With the Matrix chip it should not be too bad. I have heard mixed feelings on the "easy install" claim. I have always used solder based mods.

It would help if you indicated approximtely where u live.

oh and the XBox has a limitation of 137Gb so dont bother with 160. i think its an ide controller limitation and so a future bios wont be able to break that limit of 137...is that correct people?
