Hey

I'm just after some info on whats the best XR6 Tickford engine?

The EL or the AU? (None VCT)

I'v herd the AU has the better head,Tappered Valve Springs and also the AU has a stronger crank carrier and also the AU has a stronger sump,a nice alloy sump unlike the tin sump on the EL.

Please let me know anything else etc.

Thanks

the au motor has some improvements but the last of the el motors had most of them aswell.

As for tickford motors the au tickford motor is the vct one.

As for which one is better the au had more power but that is for a number of reasons.

The au xr6 non vct power increase is mainly to do with exhaust and computor tuning.

94dt is best head on any 4L, be sure you don?t get one of the hybrid EL xr6 heads- they flow very badly compared to earlier EF.

EF>AU>Hybrid EL.
