The Merc XR6's weren't made until 1992 or so, so it will be from at least that time of after.

Personally, I think the 2.5 L Mercs which the XR6 is are one of the best motors Merc has ever made. The VRO is an acronym for a oil injection system which is on that motor. It stands for Variable Ratio Oiling, if I remember correctly.

Personally, I like the Merc better when new, but at this point you will also want to check the condition of each engine and see what kind of shape each is in.
