I am ok with soldering, and that is a simple connection. Brianl crimped everything if I understood him. While the PID thread above is long, it is helpful for understanding and installation. You can ignore the part about adding heat with brew, though that is an option for Silvia as well, but then you need the 1/16 2 alarm PID and it does not have the nice box and under the top of Silvia. The savings in DIY is making up the wires. Once you have wires made up you have to install similar to the kit.

I'll give these a good read today from start to finish. I use my Silvia daily and rely on it for hot water hence the PID being important. I'd also like to get the PID installed so I am familiarized with it once I install a new rust proof frame later on.
