Doing a preamp modification yourself?

Are there any sites devoted to preamp modification instructions, schematics, etc? It would be nice if I could find the modifications black lion does to the MOTU so I could jsut do it myself for cheaper :P

Edit: I guess one solution is to just get a seventh audio kit, but I am interested in being able to improve my Converter quality as well.

Seriously, the newer MOTU aren't that bad. If you need a couple of outboard pres for special track, just get them.

If you have a need to smell solder fumes, build a pre-amp or compressor.

If you have to have "better" converters, get a mini-me or something for those couple of tracks where it matters.

Yeah, I would like to do that Black Lions mod to my Motu 2408 MkII as well... I live in Sweden, so I can´t use Black Lions services.
But I have a friend that could actually do it. He would only need the schematics to the Motu.
Does anyone here have it? Or anyone know a good "schematics database" or something like that.....?????
