The XR6 has higher compression..
Which will limit max power and makes tuning more critical..
The XR6 bottom end and is the same as std assembly..
The XR heads have larger exh valves,
smaller combustion chambers..


Sounds like the standard 6 is a better choice. Are the autos the same?

Yes auto is much the same.. In fact the auto itself is MUCH stronger than the manual T5..
I know your asking about the engine itself..
One engine we used was from an E.L / H.X ute with earlier manifold from E.D..

Buy or check wiring on your model of car and connect
wires as per Ecu's spec...
The wire are genetically spliced just before the std EEC...
So you know what circuit it is by colour
of wire plus pin in std EEC...

I dont think so . Pretty sure the cross flow heads would have different ports and bolts may not line up . Wouldn't be hard to make it fit
