Yes. Why would they be different?

The BA XR6 is a bodykit, trim and diff gears. It's exactly the same as an XT. There is no performance difference.

Not true about performance, they DO have different settings for the ECU. Not much but there is a slight difference. I had asked that same question 10 years ago. :D

I bought one AFTER I reseached and knew full well which engine was in it. If you bought a car not knowing what was powering it you should feel pretty silly, not ripped off

if there was any thing different in the ecu it would only be in trans shift points or something like that, otherwise they would have been listed as a different power figure from factory...

i put a xr6 ecu on my Xt, as mine was limmited to 180k, this one it goes of the clock, also the rev limmiter seems to be different, the xt just holds at around 6 the xr6 one lets it go to about 6200 but did not notice any power gains at all
