It is an engine pic of 1989 Toyota Cressida. Looks like the bmw bosch one, which I believe is the big vam.

No.
There are lots of 80's era VAMs that look just like the XR one... but are not useable on an XR.

E30 325 BMW ones and E34 525 BMW are interchangeable with the stock XR vam.

E34 535 BMW, E24 635csi BMW, E32 735 are interchangeable with the big VAM (SVO / 87-88 Turbo Coupe)

That info or this post should be in a FAQ.

YMMV
