Essentially none.

The reason for keeping the 737 tag is partly brand awareness but also it's easier to make a change to the same airframe and submit a "note to file" than to get approval for a new model. You only have to test/prove the new change, not revisit existing features that are already approved

Eventually there are no original parts but you still filling incremental changes to the FAA.
