i'm guessing it's the starfire 4? at a guess it'd be similar to the upgrade from a 6 to an 8, it'll fit but need a new k frame, fuel pump, ecu and wiring, etc read up on the upgrades from a 6 to an 8, basically the same stuff

Well what is a 2.6 dual ram, and what is it doing in a VN-VP? Also some dude from NZ posted earlier saying he had a 2lt 4cyl from a vecta in his VN...We get V6's obviously, and then go about replacing them with V8's:thumbsup:

Thats because the startfire lives up to its name. id also like to see a picture, its funny to think that the vn commodore is most likely one of the only cars to come out with a factory 4 cyc 6cyc and 8cyc
