There was two V5H engines if I remember correctly. A 5.0L one and a 4.9L one. From memory they both had B cast heads, modified intake, bigger snout air cleaner and other such bits. Both were manual only I think. The V7X was later in 1985 and also manual only. I can't remember what the difference was between V7X (VG prefix) and V5H (VB prefix). The VB prefix V5H was the 5000 engines/cars built to homologate the 500 VK GroupA (VC prefix) evolution of type engines. I have a feeling the VG prefix ones still had the modified intake, bigger air cleaner and windage tray but lost the B cast heads. Pretty sure that is what I still have in my shed off a mate's old VK 4.9L manual.

some FBend production plant mfg (Mechanical assembly) info I have might help
this for VK only... with VH starting this (and nothing on VC, HDT Commodore engines were done by them)



and after the 5,000 'performance equipment' engines were made (GMH ended up making apprx 15,000 in various forms)
some engines got all, some lost the lightened flywheel and windage tray, some got std valve heads, just a real mix...

By the way, were there any VKs AU-spec assembled after 1 January 1986? Or export only? Apparently VK engines couldn't run on unleaded fuel, and I'm guessing the Australian versions have been discontinued before the Christmas holidays. Perhaps wrong.
