Ok so I have recently purchased an xh longreach ute, it has a tickford head and engine number is VR2A-6015-AB. Is it an xr6 motor or have they just bolted a tickford head it? cheers

Head should have a "T" cast into the front of it.

Bolting a Tickford head to the block makes it the same as the XR6 Engine.

Bottom ends are the same through the series, only difference is;

1) Cam
2) Head
3) Fuel Reg
4) ECU
5) Exhaust

and Suspension if you want to get picky apart from the front bar and body fit if fitted.

If the block is cast VR2A then it is a Hybrid block. If it is fitted with the 93DT Head, the I would say that the head has been fitted to the block at sometime, probably to replace a stuffed original head or as an upgrade.

So the 93DT is the ED XR head? Also anything special about the hybrid block? It is running like s**t, it has a bad miss down low, ive just done a 5 speed conversion in it and will get a j3 chip next week. I assume it's running like that because of ecu, and fuel regulator? Cheers for the comments guys

I don't think the 93DT heads have larger exhaust valves like the later 94/95DT heads.
