Just got the above car after driving a R33 GTST for the last 4 years.

Just wondering about the tickford 4L motor (red cover and TK eng no.). Is it the same as the EF XR6 and 162kw (or 164kW). What is the actual difference from the normal motor, just ECU or something mechanical?

Was leather seats std on the Ghia or is it factory option?

I got it for $5k with 180000kms, seem fair? It had dodgy rotors so I replace all four and pads, oil and filter for $700. So $5700 seems reasonable

leather is standard.

tickford motor is 164kw. the engine is the same as the xr6 engine, it also has a 3.45LSD.

it has a more agrssive ecu (only slightly) more aggressive cam (once again only slightly) and IIRC the exhaust valves? are about 1-2mm bigger.
