For those of you who missed Mihnea's performance at Paul's this past
weekend, it was awesome! But as he said, soldering sucks!
When he sent Marc Swanson off with a replacement ECU and suggested
somebody else do the soldering, I thought that if Mihnea wants to do
some more tuning next time, folks better have their ECU's socketed
beforehand. So I checked with a local TV repair shop to see if he was
willing. It turns out he is, so here's the info for anybody who is
The shop is located in East Hartford Connecticut so obviously that sort
of limits the usefulness to local folks. The name is 20th Century TV,
Tel (860) 290-1280.
I talked to him about doing Marc's and he said he was interested but he
wanted to see it first and he didn't want to be rushed. He would
charge shop rate (approx $60/hr) with a min of 1 hr.
Marc Swanson, I believe, eventually did his himself. It's not that
hard if you have good tools and soldering skills but there's no way
Mihnea should have to do all the tuning work and the soldering. If you
want a Mihnea chip, show up with a socketed ECU!
(I don't have any relationship or deal with 20th Century TV other than
they fixed a TV of mine once. It was cheap and its still working.)
