XR6 XG Head on XH falcon ute

My 99' XH longreach ute has had no engine work done to it.

Would swapping the head off a 93 Tickford XR6 XG's ute enhance my performance on my XH? is there a difference becuase its tickford?

Are they a stronger head and will it change much like compression ratios etc?

Pretty much is it worth swapping? haha

Thanks in advance...

Cheers

Re: XR6 XG Head on XH falcon ute

i think the only difference between ur engine and the xr6 the is the different cam specs, and a second hand head wont make much difference unless its ported with a performance cam. best thing u could do is go buy urself a performance cam gear and cam shaft to improve mid range power, and change ur diff to a higher ratio, then it would be pretty much the same or better then a tickford enhanced XR6 XG ute. not sure bout compression ratios. how much is the tickford head gonna cost u?

KYB shock absorbs + camber castor kit and a 3.45 LSD.

Built with spanners, not chopsticks.

Cheers mate

I bought the head and the LSD diff off the XG Tickford for $100 a great price... I only wanted to install it if it was going to make a difference without having to spend a lot of money (travelling o/s in 2 months $$$)...

Is there anything that could have been done to this head or i could do to this head to get a bit more out of my XH? maybe shave it down for better compression?

Out of curiosity what would the head be worth as in how cheap did i get it for?

Cheers...

where are you living as i am looking for a new head to do some work with!
the only thing you should need to do is shave the head clean up the ports and cut the valves!
