Editing of a DVD burner's firmware

Hi everybody!
I got a second-hand Pioneer DVR-K17A (a slim burner with IDE interface for my laptop) and I managed to dump the firmware in order to edit it.
I would like to increase the number of writable sectors in a DVD-5 by editing the hexadecimal code. Theoretically, in this way I would enable the overburning feature.
Using an hex editor, I even saw some interesting strings that could be suitable for being modified, but I need someone who perfectly knows this stuff.
I know this is just a minor tweak and I really like experimenting, since the burner's value is very low.
I could even upload the firmware file, if someone were interested.
So if someone has useful suggestions, please reply to this message, even just for recommending particular forums more focused on firmware modding of burners.
