    Has anyone got any clues as to whether or not a VX L67 S'charged could go into 2006 VZ SVZ which currently has a 3.6 motor.
    The L67 is complete with gearbox & I have the Engine loom & Computer.
    Are there any known major hassles etc??

    Yes. It is illegal to fit a older engine to a newer car. The VZ was never fitted with a L67 so you have no hope of getting it registered.

    This. ADR rules are different.

    Have a look through this.....http://forums.justcommodores.com.au...fications-motor-vehicles-vicroads-2011-a.html

    Also, this is an extract from Here.....EPA Modified Vehicle Guidelines 2006

    Engines
    Vehicle engines are designed by the manufacturer of
    the vehicle to meet stringent exhaust and evaporative
    emission standards set out in the ADRs. Changing the
    engine of a vehicle must not result in more pollution
    being emitted than would be emitted by the original
    engine when properly maintained.
    The following engine replacement options are
    available.
    (a)
    Replacement of an original engine with a new,
    reconditioned or used engine of the same
    general specification is permitted. This engine
    must be designed to meet the original engine’s
    emission standards. All emission control
    devices and systems must be fitted. For
    example, you can install a new, reconditioned or
    secondhand Commodore VN 6-cylinder engine
    into your VN Commodore.
    (b)
    Replacement of an original engine by an engine
    that was offered as an option for that vehicle
    make and model at the time of manufacture of
    the vehicle is permitted. The replacement
    engine must be of the same specification and in
    its original configuration including all
    emissions-related devices or systems. For
    example, Ford provided several engine options
    for the XE Falcon, so the 3.3 litre 6-cylinder
    engine can be replaced by a larger V8 from the
    same model range.
    (c)
    Replacement of an original spark ignition
    engine by a diesel engine is permitted.
    (d)
    Replacement of an original engine with an
    engine that was designed to meet more
    stringent requirements
    is permitted provided
    that the replacement engine is in its original
    configuration including all emissions-related
    devices or systems. For example you can
    replace the engine of your 1987 VL Holden
    Commodore with an engine made in 1997 for a
    VS Commodore.
    (e)
    Replacement of an original engine by any other
    engine is permitted provided that:
    i.
    if the original engine was originally fitted
    with emission control devices or systems,
    then the replacement engine must be of
    similar or later age and must be designed to
    meet the same or more stringent emission
    standards (plus the emission control devices
    or systems applicable to that replacement
    engine must be fitted and operate in the
    correct manner)
