Hi all.
I have a 1996 ford falcon ef digital series 2,with a tickford engine.
I wanted to know the specs of the engine so I called ford. But they said they can't help me out because engine number could be changed etc,not sure why.


Is there any other way I can find out info about my engine??

Guy at ford Said to try tickford enthusiast clubs..
Can anyone point me in the right direction,
Cheers

Is the engine number the same as the VIN ???.....the engine won't have the 6FPAAA prefex....just something like JGSW x x x x x x x.....some thin along those lines.
If they match, then the engine is original to the car, if they don't, then it's been changed.

the number on the front of the head should be either 94dt, 95dt or 96dt..

95= year
d= falcon
t= tickford..
