fitting a Cleveland to a '84 XE in WA

Sorry if this has already been discussed in another thread, but I’ve spent a couple of hours searching without success.

Has anybody here converted an ’84 XE from a 6 to an 8 in WA?

The tech guy at the Licensing Centre said that I will need to demonstrate that it has all the same options as any other factory V8 XE.

Does anyone know what that means? Rear disc brakes, what else? I have an ’84 Fairmont Ghia with factory injected 6 as a starting point. As you would know, this model came with a factory disc LSD.

What else is different between an ‘82-‘83 V8 XE and a 6 cylinder ‘84 XE?

It’s already running dual fuel and I plan to convert to straight gas, as the compression will be too high for pump petrol.

I have 5 Clevelands to choose from in my shed, but I’m not sure which one would be easier to have licensed (if it makes any difference as I’ll be running straight gas).
