what kind of solder you using? And, is it just me, or is it a real pain in the ass to desolder all those connections?

First off, great write up!!!

Would anyone not recommend using a 20-pin socket for the 74HC373 chip. I'd think it'd help not exposing the IC to heat if it can be avoided, but I'd like to make sure there are no possible issues with doing that...

No real issues with socketing the 373. However, I've soldered probably 150 of them into ECUs over the years, and I've "NEVER" had one that got damaged by the heat.

However, I am quite deliberate in my soldering methods. I only do 1 or 2 pins at a time, and then either stop for 25-30 seconds, or go and solder something else on the board. This really limits the amount of heat you put into the component.
