Yeah it does but you need to put spacers under the top 2 bolts and slightly notch the timing cover

If u are going to get the engine wire loom package, it's very easy to bolt up,

Depending on what car you have,

If u have a VL /NA 5 Speed it's a piece of piss
VL Turbo, change yok
Auto's no idea sorry

My mate brought the engine of sss automotive
He brought the wiring diagram for a RB20DET into VL from Japanese Automotive ?? (the ones that advertise in Zoom) $150 and takes about 3 hours 2 do your self, very simple

I have a VL Turbo body, i had to change my Tail shaft yoke Change the dump pipe of the RB30et bolted straight up to my RB20DET couldn't believe it!
I got my Injectors Cleaned, new thermo stat, oil filter Timing Belt etc, new clutch, RB30e Flywheel Machined,

think all up cost me about $3 and a bit, i didn't have intercooler, just ran the turbo to inlet manifold and standard boost,

do u know if there anr any pics online of this diagram i need it to help me install my rb20det into my vl lol....
