Default Extended ZIF Socket?

how hard would it be to solder wires into a chip socket, and the other ends onto a zif socket a few feet later?

Would there be a problem with resistances from long wires?

I want to mount just my chip someone, maby in a large "NOS" switch type cover lol, as im way to poor to afford a ostrich and my tuning consists of driving home, running inside and making changes hah.

i hear ya there. where are you located i have an ostrich and a laptop if you wanna go out one night and tunne away with out having to run inside. however it would be pretty cool to plug a emulator into a dash port. however if you using uv chips you might have a problem where it erases itself if the car sat in the sun

i wonder if you can splice and solder one of those computer ide ribbon cables into the socket and onto the zif. by then i might as well go buy a damn ostrish and source out a laptop to borrow.
