PowerBook upgrade to 1.67 Ghz

I own a 1.33 Ghz PowerBook and would like to push the limits.
Has anyone replaced the crystal to 1.5 Ghz or better yet to 1.67 Ghz.
Are there CPU temperature problems that can be worked around?
Would the motherboard layout need altered?
Can anyone buy a new 1.67 Ghz motherboard from an Apple dealer or a Developer?
Thanks in advance.

The G4 is more sensitive to overclocking than most due to internal timing issues. I wouldn't expect more than 3% (though some people have gotten lucky with more)
