EL Tickford Vs AU Tickford

Hey

I'm just after some info on whats the best XR6 Tickford engine?

The EL or the AU? (None VCT)

I'v herd the AU has the better head,Tappered Valve Springs and also the AU has a stronger crank carrier and also the AU has a stronger sump,a nice alloy sump unlike the tin sump on the EL.

Please let me know anything else etc.

Thanks

Re: EL Tickford Vs AU Tickford

the au motor has some improvements but the last of the el motors had most of them aswell.

As for tickford motors the au tickford motor is the vct one.

As for which one is better the au had more power but that is for a number of reasons.

The au xr6 non vct power increase is mainly to do with exhaust and computor tuning.
