I bought a ef2 Tickford 6 yesterday, 196,000k's- $3,400 good nick I was surprised that even in such an old car- you still can tell the difference between it and a stock motor easily, geez it pulls nicely from 3 rev's to redline....not to mention an auto with full tyre tread losing traction in the dry under full throttle...nice

I have one prob I need to sort out, which i have nooooo Idea where to start.
The lights on dash and interior lights and headlights flicker at idle and up to 60km/hr- :roll:

Also does anyone have a brown premium radio surround???

Yes a ghia is setup with lower ratio's for cruising where as the tickfords were set up for some more spirited driving

That's why motor revs more than the ghia at 100km
If this is problem you could always drop in a T5 or somethin :)

so do you mean the tickford 6 in the ef2 has 3.23's or 3.45??

so from what i can work out, its basically an xr6 without the stiff suspension and quad lights?

my T5 seems to hang around the 2g + at 100k because i took off the emissions control and bumped up the idle speed.. Seems to be a common mod, have you checked it?

I was serious, sometimes a faulty reg on the alt can cause the lights on the dash to flicker
