I think the Police ECU simply alters the g'box change points, and wont allow 4th gear below 60 kph. Apart from that, no difference (I'm pretty sure)

Regulations state that all police vehicles must be automatic. This is so they can safely use the radio while driving.

Just make sure that its also an EF and not an EL ecu or else you'll be running into problems...

I'm not sure if there were many ex-cop EFs (well in WA anyway).

my old el was an ex cop 6cyl and im really not sure if mine held 3rd till 60km/h i dont think it did,but it certainly held gears a hell of a long time and there was no speed limiter.
