Its just the extractors or headers that are different. More restrictive so there is less noise for people who want luxury. Its the same for the V8s.
Put a decent set of extractors on and you'll probably get power than the stock XR motor.

Lots of people have painted it red, has it got the T in the front of the head? pull off the shroud covering the power steering pump, and have a look, as i said in the first post, AFAIK, only s2 got it, thats means i may be wrong, anyone?
