Hey all,
I've been changing my mind a lot over the past couple days, and decided to sell my tickford head, and get the new double row valve springs, big sre cam and etc.
Back to topic, I've changed the trans and diff and speedo from a au series 2 xr6 and was wondering, would the tickford computer be better than the standard au sr? I know it has different tunes and etc, but just asking regarding not using the tickford head, but using the 3.45 LSD off it.
Or would I be best just to sell the ticky computer, and buy a T.I j3 for it?

J3 will give you better options and future options for another tune if/when other stuff gets done down the track

They are both series 2's.
I'm thinking that if the standard ecu will run the diff correctly for a while, I'll just wait till everything's done and go get a custom j3 or xcal 3
