I am reminded of waaay back in the early PC days, a friend of mine jacked a 640kb RAM PC - remember those? - so it would use additional 64kb memory segments and effectively increase it to an 896KB machine. He did it by making a new prom chip that had an altered address list to address the new segments, in effect, and using a small assember routine to run that addressed the new table. In conjunction with the post above, I wonder if you guys could add loop time/RAM if you had a modified chip on that level? Just a morning thought.
