I don't think so!

An XR2 was a 2 litre carb engine, the 2.5 EFI was/is exactly what it says on the tin, and an additional 80 hp.

That is neither an XR2 or a 300 - it's a 2.5 efi, as standard they were 260hp or later 280hp as standard (the later ones have a digital injection system). This one is tuned - Smiling Jacks is a US tuning / aftermarket parts company in the US. If you want to know more about the different models etc try boatmad.com - there are some guys on there that know a lot about high performance Mercs.
