If I understand this correctly, your friend should simply call the DMV or state attorney general.

Misunderstanding... the VIN remained the same, Only the other paperwork was altered to show the replacement engine as original - Build Sheets, Dealer Data... No reason to change the VIN because this does not indicate an Engine Serial # in it...sorry for the confusion...

Happy Motoring!... Jim'99
