Mac Pro 1,1 CPU Upgrades, E5340 or E5345 BSEL?

After doing extensive research and purchasing some Xeon 5160's to upgrade my 2006 Quad 2.66 Mac Pro, I'm thinking about instead getting Intels E Series Xeon processors and maybe BSEL modding them, to get my core count up to 8 on the cheap.

1st Q: How do you BSEL Mod? I'll google myself, but is it easy to do?

2nd Q: What processors will work on my 1,1 Mac Pro?

Will Intel Xeon E5340 2.40Ghz QUQI Clovertown Quad Core CPUs or Xeon E5345 2.33 GHz Quad-Core (SLAEJ) Processors work in the 1,1 Mac Pro?

How will the performance be compared to say the exorbitantly more expensive 5365 processor? Especially if I BSEL mod?

EDIT: After further research, it appears the E5345 runs with a FSB at 1333Mhz, thus making it impossible to BSEL mod.
