480

Post by Logan360 » 03 Feb 2014 08:03 am

Heh guys. There is a guy over here who seems to love his 400s as much as we our 300s. I was wondering if any 480es parts are compatible with the 360s?

Forget it.
Some, read very few, will be interchangeable.

The only shared parts are engine parts and are common to the 1.7 340 only.

Not even the fuses are the same!

Ok Chris, fair enough, but it is the 300 series lists on VADIS and VIDA. Continous development and all that. What about the ambient temp sender thingy then?

I agree with the main point in that they are pretty useless for cribbing parts from.

How hard would a 480 rear disc conversion be?
