Fairlane by Tickford

Looked at a Fairlane by Tickford years ago when buying XR8 back in July 98'.
I just read a spec sheet on a website that said they had a 195kw motor!
What was changed from the 185kw XR8 motor to give them 195kw in the Fairlane?

According to the car mag articles of the time the engine was the same as the EL GT. ie GT40 iron heads and GT40 tubular intake manifold. I believe it had a different camshaft grind and revised ECU progamming to produce more low and midrange torque to suit the heavier weight and likely role of the vehicle.
