Just compared our VX dipstick with my mates one from his VY engine and both have the exact same dipstick, same part number. Maybe the VY sump is different to hold the greater oil volume?

I think next time I'll put in the full 5 litres and remark the dipstick and see what happens.

I think vx is the same dipstick. you need to compare vt or vs to a vx/vy.

vy sump is the same capacity as the rest just different bellhousing lugs at the rest.

Are you talking about the 2 braces that go from side to side at the block flange? If yes I never seen one without those. All mine had that.

The IAC response is pretty slow due to the mechanics of it, can play with the deadband and sag/stall saver modes to pull the RPM back to target. But on a vehicle the idle spark is used for fast changes when either above or below target idle speed. In your case you will need to have spark retarded from MBT for this to work though.
