ED Tickford computer.

hey guys, just wondering if there would be any point in putting my ED Tickford computer in my ED Ghia? would there be any performance increase (i doubt it) was also thinking of putting in my ED XR cam for now as a while down the track i will be doing up a fully reco 4.0 with my XR head on it. just want some sort of increase now. will i notice a difference with that cam and the computer. just want to know now before i waste any time. thanks

Re: ED Tickford computer.

Depends on lots of factors. I doubt it would make much of a difference, but an ED XR cam would help.

What diff is in the ED Ghia?
