Dual PIII's and Linux! Nice work! Not sure if you have read all of Yoichiro's modifications he did. From what I have read on his site, even if you do all the modifications, you still may not be able to get 110 or higher.
When you are running at 100 or 83, are you experiencing any random lockups or reboots?

I have also seen all of the mods sites that you mentioned and there is one thing that bothers me about the Friendtech's recommendations is that they don't mention why these changes should be implemented.
I can mention that the caps that I replaced were all of bigger size (in terms of microF and physical size) than the originals but I used the same voltage specifications. I replaced the 8 caps around the voltage regulators and the 12 caps around the ZIF sockets.
I am not so sure you will ever see 133 on the BP6 no matter how much you try. I think the adventurous over on this forum have reached 110 but thats it. I makes me wonder how the NEO 370S handles overclocked frequency as opposed to the frequency switches on the adapter itself?

I've found that the 3dfx drivers are unstable (and unmaintained, so it's not likely to get fixed any time soon) as well as the closed source nVidia drivers. I've setup my system so I can run with the opensource nv driver when I don't need the 3d acceleration. That cleared up my problems.
