What change is needed to convert an A340-311 with CFM56-5C2 to an
A340-313X with CFM56-5C4. I know that -- among other factors -- the MTOW
was increased on the 313X. If memory serves it has also a strengthened
wing and undercarriage. Is this conversion possible, if yes what changes
are needed on the frame and on the engines. Can the changes on the frame
be performed during a C or D check ?

Any experts out there ?
