The VN - VS wagon tankshould fit. The filler neck is longer due to a section of rubber hose. Just push the filler neck into the hose or cut it down. Compare with you filler neck on your VK for length before fitting.

VN diff bolts in. It is 57mm wider. It is ok if you don't run greater than 225 rubber and superlow springs. I have a VN diff in my VB.

I used a V6 conversions loom. You can just plug in to your ecotec engine loom and into your VK harness. Retain all your existing dash. You can get a BCM black box thingo or you can can your ECU reprogrammed as I have done for manual, no speed sensor and the VATS removed.

Do a search. Plenty of info available or PM 180SC he has recently put and ecotec into a VH wagon and latter an L67.
