I know it's a long shot, but I will try it anyway.
I'm after a Warpengine 3040.

Good luck and a very fine choice.

The 3040 is the best designed accelerator for the 3000D, imho.

I hope you can track one down...

Cheers,

Matt

There is easier way - find WarpEngine 4040 and downgrade to 3040 by removing four straight RAM sockets and installing two 45 degree angled type. Hard to say about costs - at the end it could be the same as CS MK II 040 + SCSI module...

+1 Stachu, I did the very same thing with an apollo 4060 ---> 3060 :)

Didn't know that, amazing :)

But I'm not going to chop up my 4040, that has been restored by Hikey to a point where it looks like new :)
