Yeah, if its an Aug 98 build, it would have to be one of the very very very last EL's ever produced, and would have pretty much a complete AU motor.

Lift the belt cover and check the model code on the head. 96DT or WR2Axxxxx is AU, and you'll need the appropriate cam. 94DT or 95DT is EF/EL.


dont forget the most common, which is 94AB

Hmm got me interested in looking into if my el has an au head or not, forgot to mention that it has a tickford engine and driveline which is the same or simular to an el xr6 (guessing). Thanks for input guys will look into it and update you guys on wat i find out, cheers.

Hey Gezza, cams going good. Got a J3 chip just a couple of days ago, has fixed the idle and the running rich issue.
I haven't had a chance to thrash her to see how she goes with the chip yet, but I'm happy as mate. :mrgreen:
