Yes, same engine, just slight less power and lower emissions (because of the extra Cats.

Belt (etc) change still 3-years/36000miles.

Euro2 = 155bhp
Euro3 = 150bhp

Bear in mind though that the engine mapping has been set for the OEM exhaust, so an exhaust change might not give you all the benefit you hoped for without correspondingly remapping.
