Yes.
The square should allow 96BHP.
The round 90BHP

The dft is more of a performance carb than the Tdlm carb. Plus chances are that engine you bought is a hemi cvh.

You need to remove the cylinder head to be sure, or check the head for a date stamp. If I remember, the Hemi cvh ran up until late 85 early 86. As late C plate XR2's were early spec. Certainly By D reg the lean burn / tldm was in full swing.

34/34 DATR or DMTR is the ultimate single carb for the XR2 / 1.6 CVH. Bolts straight onto the DFT manifold aswell ;)
