Hey Guys,

As the topic states.
I know the easiest way is if it has a red rocker cover and the T on the front of the cylinder head.

But what do the number mean next to the T of the head?

i.e. my Tickford Head says 95 DT From an XR6 Sedan, where as another Tickford head says 69DT but this is from a Ute.

Do these numbers really matter?

Thank you

The number at the start refers to the year the head was made I.e 95DT is a 1995 tickford head, T at the end means tickford.

Not sure about the ute one mate, but what I said is correct in regard to sedans/wagons...

96 would sound more correct...

Thanks for the quick replies guys.

I too was a little confused when I saw 69 DT.

I am buying a motor from someone and they must have mistyped 69 instead of 96.

troyman just said on another post, that the 96DT head is a hybrid head so it'll run the au rocker setup

On S lightly different note:

Does anyone know why the EL Fairmont Ghia and the XR6 Ute had 162 KW, while the XR6 had 164KW?

Thank You

Same engine, but with cat back exhaust for 2 kw gain.

Yeah that sounds about right, and the XR ECU is set to be a little more aggressive.

The numbers, ie: 96DT, ....the numbers are the design year .....and the DT, as in the T, is for Tickford.......if that makes any sense..... :?
