In the process of doing this for Claire's, we filled out the V5 sent it off and DVLa sent it back with a letter asking for proof of engine number and cc, they gave us a list of acceptable things, will post them when I'm home from work
The last one I did, didn't even have an engine number, this had been ground off, I took the precaution of asking me mate, a traffic cop to come witness the no engine number, which I hadn't even noticed before having fully rebuilt the engine(2.8 V6 ford), V5 came back with "ident unclear" on V5.
When me dad re reg his 4L V8 4i from old sd1 reg with new engine number of v8, again simply sent off the V5, maybe it has changed recently ?
Personally I wouldn't send them a engineers report, they either change it or not as they wish, so long as you have tried you're covered imo, hell some peeps don't even have V5's, they would be better concentrating on not letting 1.2 million V5's go walkabout!!
