CSR exhaust to DeDion SV??

Matt W is selling a CSR exhaust (presumably from 2.3) and incidentally a friend of mine is looking for one for his 2009/2010 2.0 Duratec EU4 LHD car. Does anybody have an idea if it will fit??

Igor - I think the engine may be in a slightly different position, fore and aft as well as vertically, comparing a CSR to an SV.  They use different bellhousings (assuming the CSR was a dry sump car) and the 2.3 engine in the CSR is taller so, to fit below the bonnet, is mounted a tad lower (think crank height above ground) than on an SV.

Easy to check, though, using some fixed point on the engine and measuring back to the exhaust mounting point just below the driver's RH buttock (assuming RHD) on the outside of the car, and vertically with reference to the lower chassis rails or something like that?

Hi James,

I think the biggest question mark are the primaries, the rest can be adjusted.

As my first post reads it is 2009/2010 2.0 Duratec EU4 LHD Roadsport SV. 

The 2.3 was lower in order to fit under the bonnet.

Will figure out some measurements.

probably worth a call to Chessman who make them and ask them to confirm on the drawings....?

The bellhousing although different in appearence will be dimensional the same since its based around the same V6 first motion shaft, so its the long version as opposed to the Raceline short option.

Engine height and the effect on sideskins would be the key i think.

Spoken to them, it is going to be a bit of a detective work.

Anybody any idea about this?

I have a feel the primaries will be the key to this - and their clearance from the chassis. 
 

Any useful measurements to take??
