The same engine, but slightly less power due to quieter exhaust.

Re: EFii EL fairmont ghia engine

Just wondering why the NL Ghia doesn't have the Ticky donk, whereas the Fairmont does?

Mine isn't the Tickford, I'm sure. Black rocker cover, no wings on the block.

Re: EFii EL fairmont ghia engine

fairmont ghia's were aimed at a sports luxury section of the market, hence the tickford goodies.

Re: EFii EL fairmont ghia engine

hey

there was only 2kw difference between the xr6 and the ef2 ghia but yes an exhaust will fix that dilema and give it more power more then 2 kw thats for sure.

go the ef2 ghias (love the big "T" on the head)

thanks
