Not a trivial install. You’ll be desoldering the crystal and soldering jumper wires to the main logic board.  Nice because it doesn’t involve a hacked SPST switch, and is controllable from the power switch of the Newton.

I’ve considered other options for this.  Something like an Si3531 chip now adays can generate these clock speeds and are controllable via I2C.  Also it is “glitchless” so that you don’t crash the CPU with malformed clock signals when you switch frequencies.  I’m not an expert here, but it is something I wanted to experiment with once upon a time.

    What is the Implant 2000 do? It is clock speed up to 220MHz? Or something more?
