If you followed the Guide: Softmod ANY Wii, your system ios are dip patched. This means that you can load recovery disc without a modchip.
I have a wasabi dx, afaik it works on all dvd drives that are compatible with modchips. It plays gc games, but has the sound issues. It plays wii games, but only at 3x, but 3x is what all the newer drives will get. If your drive supports it you can install it as a wasabi zero with 6x speeds.
If your only looking to fix a bricked wii, ensure you have followed the guide, and installed the patched 4.1 system menu, and priiloader, bootmii (with nand backup) and you will never need a chip.
