If it's the same fitment it will work but I know that you need to get resistors with it so it might be a bit more complicated. If you get those let me know how it went I would like to see it.

I am little confused since Switchbacks switch between two colors which essentially means that it should have two filaments. but the 7440 has a single filament.
