    i have just purchased my first ae,
    a GTV levin sprinter running a 20valve with quad throttles.
    the previous owner had the car registered with a EFI 16valve 4A-GE up in QLD. Now that the car has a 20v and is down in melbourne. Do i need an engineers or vass certificate or not because i know that when an engine is replaced, (if its the same engine) then a certificate isn't needed.
    any info will be much appreciated.
    cheers

    yes you do. the authorities to not consider a 20v 4age to be the same engine as a 16v.

    If the 20v had been engineered in QLD, would you still need to get a new certificate for Melbourne?

    im going up to QLD, if i just get it engineered there will the certificate count for VIC?
    and how long does it take for a mechanic to analyze whether it is "engineered".
    also, does anyone know any mechanics that i can take it to seeing as its only 80 bux, save some coin and use it on some watanabes
    cheers
