Engine number will start with one of the following 2 letters.

VE Sv5000 and other 200kw VN HSV "red cover" motors
VU VN-VS EFI 304
VK = VN Group A (+ VP GTS & others that used the 4 bolt block)
VL = VR/VS 5.7L 215kw HSV Stroker
VM = VT EFI 304 roller cammed black
VN = VT EFI 304 HSV 195
VP = VT 5.7L 220kw HSV Stroker

A 185 motor is a VN - VS efi motor, just has a knock sensor and ECU chip. My guess is the Engine No will start with the same as a standard VN - VS 304 EFI block.

Nope the only difference is the knock sensor, chip, exhaust and inatke. A VN-VS HSV 185i motor offers very little advantage over a VN-VS 165kw Holden 304

185i and 215i are the same block originally... 215i is factory stroked 5.7 (aka HSV enhanced)... My mate has a HSV Enhanced 5.7 VS Statesman with Hydra-Trak extra's... Absolute awesome car!!!

the 215's also had from memory green top injectors and the engine covers were painted a darker grey instead of silver.
