    new and old engine code is APU.... I know where APU can be found.. what I am after is the whole engine number (APU030667)

    where can I locate the 6 digits ???
    there is no time for me to re-register the car with the new engine so I might just redo the old number on the new engine

    Teo, the engine number is stamped on the block. Tbh, i have changed engines before, and not bothered changing the Engine no with DVLA (even when going from a 2.5 to a 3.2 :eyebrows:).

    If your worried about resale, i'd have thought its unlikely that anyone would dig about for an engine no on a car thats f/s for less than 2k.

    not worried about sale... thought about taking the car to bulgaria and have it registered there... then i can pay only 100pounds insuarance per 3 month...
