I want to PID my V3 Silvia, but I am not a technical person.  I know there are vendors who sell/install the PID unit.  Does anyone have any recommendations?

Thanks

I have had a fair amount of interaction with Jim Galtt who sells under the name MLG OR pidkits.com and have nothing but great things to say about him. I have not bought his kit but based on my interactions with Jim I would expect them to be high quality.

When I had my Silvia, the very first thing I did was install an Auber PID.  Watching the video & installing the unit was easy & took about 1 hour.  It is a no brainer & easily the best upgrade you can do for the machine!  Good luck!

HiTechEspresso will install a PID on your machine.  When I had a Silvia, I purchased the machine with the PID preinstalled from HiTechEspresso.  The work was professionally done and the machine worked great.  See their eBay store for details.
