Don't know reason for color choice, but all xr6 have had red rocker covers from EB on.

Edit: With the exception of the BA/BF which now have red only on Turbo 6

Re: Head details?

Alot of the Ford engines have had red rocker covers through the years.

Blue ,Red ,Silver and Black have been common on different engine sizes and spec's.
