LG GCE-9160B: Can it be overclocked? (yeah, my hardware's cheap and lame!)

After seeing that other drives could be "overclocked" by simply writing new firmware for a faster drive (via SlashDot), I was wondering if anyone has had any success with "older" or "slower" drives than those previously mentioned in the overclocking articles...

For example, would my drive be able to be overclocked to a 24x16x40 (or whichever proportions there may be)? Perhaps others who bought this kind of budget drive (seriously, LG's cheap drives beat the crap out of what was on the market just a year before for the same price)...

Furthermore, is there a database online that lists off various drives and the firmwares they can be upgraded to, in order to simplify the process of finding them? If not, should someone do it (if not, I'm willing to take suggestions so I can do it myself)?
