No, as far as I know the fr60 is absolutely software compatible to fr50 and 
fr30. The instruction set architecture did not change as well as interrupt 
exception handling.

It seems, you are interested in Flexray. It think most of the time porting 
ecos you will spend in developing drivers.

The decision is up to you. I think porting to the MB91460 will be a bit easier 
because of the simpler architecture, but if you have done the MPC5567 you 
will have a bit more fun with it. (I think I would also tend to the MPC...)
