Default Switch HP printer to eco solvent?

I currently own an HP Z2100 44" printer and have been looking to buy a Roland printer but am having a hard time selling my HP printer. The printer is only 1 year old and was reading about some people swaping out parts in thir printer so they can use eco solvent inks. We need this to print on certain vinyl. Is this possible? If so is it expensive?

I wouldn't recommend it, you will probably damage the heads.
HP work by boiling the water to create a pressure wave, this may happen too soon or too late with the solvent. It will also leave deposits on the heaters.
You can sell anything, it's just the price you can get for it, the world has changed a lot in the last year.
