    hey guys just wondering if anybody knows if there are any requirements that i need to register a vc with an injected 5 litre in victoria? does it need to be engineered? i thought it would not have to be as vc's came out with a 5 litre from factory.

    cheers

    You just need to change the engine number at vicroads, no engineering

    Yes, it a true story :), any motor that was an option from the factory or is a motor of similar capacity and weight that doesn't require special custom made mounts to be installed and passes emissions for the car it going in or is from a newer emissions rule can be put in without an engineers certificate, you will need V8 spec brakes and front springs

    From memory I believe the fuel filler neck also needs to be changed to accept the smaller sized unleaded nozzle. But with the phaseout of the older leaded size pumps that may not be an issue provided legislation is up to date with reality. All emissions (including cats) would need to be up to speck with the model the engine came from. Check with VicRoads anyway.
