Never heard of anything like it, so I doubt it is possible. You can always try to flash the C351 with the C450 firmware, but you risk burning some boards if it goes wrong - and they're quite expensive.

Keep us posted on your findings - I'm morbidly curious on how it turns out.

In calgary, our board repair department used to do this. It is called "turbo"-ing a slower device to make it mimick the faster brother. However, KM Head office put the kibosh on this and shut us down. The basics of this is a few moderations on all the key boards, PRCB, MCB, C-board and HV board. Some lines were cut and rerouted. Then the machine was flashed to the faster machine model. The drawback to doing this however is that ALL the modified boards cannot be swapped to another machine, even a C450, even though it mimicks one.

No special modifications are needed, aside from ensuring you have the appropriate memory installed in the machine. Print out a configuration sheet from the copier under the user options to determine this, or use pagescope web interface. In addition, you may need to enable the option and or possibly update the firmware to the mainbody.
