Vy
Hi all, bought a supposed VY 3.8 ecotec from the wreckers, but it's got a different sump from the VY (no gearbox bolts at bottom) and also had different headers from my VY ones. The engine number is VH841229. Any idea what it's out of? Cheers

Sounds like vt - vx if it has the egr valve. If not vs.
The vt - vx has a couple of brackets from engine sump to the bellhousing.
The vy exhaust manifolds are different to vt - vx.

To fit the engine you would need the 2 sump brackets & engine pipe with cat?
Maybe easier to take back & just get the proper vy engine.
