Engine differences blue & black

Gday, i was wondering if anyone can tell me what the differences between the blue and black motors are. I know that the black motor has heaps more pollution gear on it and someone told me that the head on these breathe better than the blue heads. I also heard that the rods in blue motor are heaps stronger. So what are the main differences between these motors? thanks a lot joe.

Motor run in

I just got a 202 motor dropped in

The run in leaflet says to accelerate to 60-90km/h in low gear (2nd in auto) for 6-7 times a drive.

Ive got a 3 on tree. Does that mean to over rev in 1st gear to 60km/h???

Cheers

Limited slip banjo Diff

I am wanting to know if I am able to take the middle of a limited slip banjo diff and put it in a normal banjo diff housing. I have a hx (with limited slip) sedan and I was wanting to put the diff in a hq ute. They don't hook up the same way. Leaf springs etc. So i was wondering if I could just swap the centres over?
I just bought both of these vechiles and was told the car had the limited slip banjo in it. Has this diff got a scientific name?
