I've got an Indigo R4K, but i haven't actually look to
see if it is an R4000 or an R4400.  The battery is dead
and i lack an IRIS keyboard so i haven't dug into it

It does have an old ColorBus RIP card, which i would
gladly trade for a functional door (with no third party
logos on it.)

The things that seem to be a real bitch to find at a
decent price are the drive sleds.  It's cheaper just to
buy a couple of $20 low end Indigos and scavenge the
sleds from there, but then i'd be stuck with useless
Indigos that i would *never* be able to bring myself to
toss out :)
