color matched cem´s

From CEM to VEM, from LED to lightbulb and more. If you have an electrical problem, like a broken info-centre, search for answers in this category. This is also the place to be when you expect the problem to be of an electrical nature...

440 + 460 's dont have CEMs hence there are less electrical gremlins in the 440 +460.

That are no CEM's. The cem (central electronical module) controle electrical things like rearwindow heating, wipers, blinkers, alarm, electrical windows etc but have nothing to do with the engine management and are only used in the 480 like bkf_uk said. The boost and fuel ecu's can be replaced for the same coloured ones from the 440/460/480 turbo's.

The combination is right. Not starting could arise from anything. The particular set will need a lambda sonde connected. Your '90 480 may not have one.
