It depends what accelerator you have.

If you have a Commodore A3640 then upgrading will be complex but not impossible.

Consider replacing the capacitors, and upgrading to a v3.1 at the same time.

Getting a new accelerator with RAM is your real goal. Something like a WarpEngine 040 or something. The A3640 has no RAM and doesnt support the 040 burst mode which really cripples this accelerator.

If you upgrade to a new MC68040RC?? try to get one with a mask L88M (or a K63H) as these run cool and needs no heatsink even at 40MHz
