You can link, you know. Bitsavers and Archive.org aren't going anywhere any time soon ;)

Hello!
I was looking for information about motherboards with 486sxl support (pga168) - I found information about motherboards: DataExpert EXP4349 (manual), Micronics LX30WB (manual), Vision Technologies VLR486 (stason.org). Are there other motherboards for this processor? Do you work on any Motherboard?

I am looking for information that other motherboard models will allow to run the 486sxl processor.
I have a processor (sxl2-50) - I am looking for any compatible motherboard.

The EXP4349 will run the PGA-168 version of the SXL2. I tested this configuration before my motherboard died. The BIOS on that board has issues though, it will only let you enter the BIOS if the battery has been drained or there is some other form of CMOS mismatch. Even though it says, "Press DEL to enter BIOS", it won't enter BIOS. To get a CMOS mismatch, I had to remove the BIOS and put in another chip.

Any reason you don't want to use the PGA-132 SXL2? There are more motherboards which will work with this chip.

I have this processor in pga-168. I will test motherboards with this processor. If it works, I will be satisfied.
