    Hi all, any help would be apreciated... Trying to check vin to VK Commodore, but can't work out the engine code, Just wondering if it might be the 4.9ltr as i can't find the engine code for it... But saying that, i'm sure the 4.9ltr only came out in the Group A...

    8K19GFL1*****K

    I know it's:
    8 = Holden
    K = SL Commodore
    19 = Sedan
    G = ?????????
    F = 1986
    L1 = Adelaide Built
    ***** = Serial Number
    K = VK

    I looked everywhere, found engine codes for:
    T = 5ltr V8
    L = 3.3ltr carby 6
    K = 3.3ltr EFI 6
    N = 1.9ltr Carby 4 (new zealand market only)

    Hey Mick,

    G = 4.9

    All the other numbers look correct.

    Cheers

    Thanks for the quick response... Was sure it was the 4.9L as i couldn't find the vin codes for it.... This car is missing the body id plate, so couldn't get the engine model off it...
