visual diff's between ef tickford/non tickford i6

what are the differences between the tickford i6 in the ef fairmonts and the non tickford i6?

also was it available to option the tickford setup(engine, suspension and lsd) in a standard fairmont? because i have just bought a fairmont off my aunty and she baught it as it is(apart from aftermarket headers and 2 inch exhaust) and it has the tickford wings on the front quaters as well as next to the fairmont badge on the back. she also told me it had the lowered sports suspension... apart from that she doesnt know. it also has the 15 inch alloys.

Re: visual diff's between ef tickford/non tickford i6

tickford motors were only avail in the ef series 2 fairmont ghias onwards (and xr's), allways with an auto in the fairmonts


If you take the black shroud off the power steering pump/ serpentine belt there will b a embossed "T" on the ront of the head , Also there should be a red rocker cover and possibly a air intake with tickford writing on it (if its still there and hasnt been replaced with cAi

Re: visual diff's between ef tickford/non tickford i6

Ps i would be worried about that 2 inch exhaust as all falcon exhausts from ea's onwards are 2 1/4 in size , Bar the xr's as they are 2 1/2 mandrell bent

Re: visual diff's between ef tickford/non tickford i6

lol, that was what my aunty told me... i thaught it sounded a wee bit small. i just went and had a look and a bit of a measure though and it seems to be a 2.5 inch exhaust... the car doesnt have a black shroud over the powersteering pump and stuff. but there also isnt a t on the head and the rocker cover isnt red... everything seems to point to it not being a genuin tickford fairmont... it not being a ghia and not being a series 2 also points to that ohhh well 6 grand for a ef fairmont with extractors and a 2.5 inch system isnt that bad is it?

In addition the T on the head it should have 94DT on it, instead of 94DA on the standard heads.

Re: visual diff's between ef tickford/non tickford i6

p.s is it possible that it could have been optioned with the tickford suspension and/or the lsd?

my aunty is sure that it has the tickford suspension (it is as low as an xr), and i would like if it had the lsd

Re: visual diff's between ef tickford/non tickford i6

um is there a tag on the filler plug of the diff identifying it as a lsd, It may well have been optioned with the sports suspension

Re: visual diff's between ef tickford/non tickford i6

YAY, its got an lsd (the tag on the diff said 3.23:1) which according to eafalcon.com is the lsd for an auto. no tag on the filler plug though.... and of course there is always onother way to check if the dif slips i think you all know what im saying the head actually has 94 AB on it... whats that mean (is it different to the regular 94DA or is it just another number put on the regular head?)

Re: visual diff's between ef tickford/non tickford i6

one more thing, how much do you guys estimate it is worth? it has about 200k on the clock and it is in vary good condition, its got duel fuel... ummm dont know anything else to tell apart from what has already been said.

btw the tranny seems a lil slow to drop back when ya plant it. its that just how these trannies are? or is it in need of a service? ( its about as slow as the never serviced c10 in my xa fairmont coupe)
