Does anyone know which PIDs will fit? Also, I am considering to upgrade to a Silvia end of next year (moving to 220v country) so want to know if I can easily remove the PID and transfer to Silvia (without making irreversible changes to the Lelit). The main reason for the PID is to get temperature consistency that will rid me of the need to temperature surf. 1 in 3 shots comes out very sour.

The PID unit itself will fit any machine - what will change between machines is the mounting for the temperature sensor required (screws in place of the brew thermostat on my Gaggia), and possibly the rating of the SSR (although I suspect that should stay the same for all machines as they all draw about the same maximum power, between 1100 and 1400W).
The typical SSRs and PIDs used are usually OK for both 120V and 230V, so moving the parts across shouldn't be a problem. But obviously check first...
