Re: Any mods to recomend (nl tickford fairlane)

The motors in the Fairlane By Tickford are actually identical to ELGT in every way, so much so that Tickford were actually considering calling them a Fairlane GT, as to keep with the Fairlane history of the 60's, but decided late in the game not to.
The 195kw rating is due to a more restrictive exhaust, and that is the only difference.

So here is your first point of call....
Shane

PM me for your Pro-M prices

The 2 drag racers addages
1. If you are in control - you haven't got enough Horse Power...
2. If you throw it up in the air and it comes down - It's too heavy...

My Toys:
1998 NL FBT 033, Blue
1996 NL V8 Fairlane Ghia, YBESLO White, Grey trim, 16" V5 Simmons, LOW

Squeezed is nice, stroked is good, blown is unbeliveable - but all 3 is heaven

There ain't no way that you could call this exhaust quiet!

Re: Any mods to recomend (nl tickford fairlane)

what is it a single 3" with a single muffler? brand of extractors? oversized cats?

as before what roller rockers does it have? if it has 1.6's could upgrade them to 1.7's.

could port the gt40's a bit to get some more kw's.

how much are you willing to spend?
