Default Flyin Miata 2 from 1.8 Mk2.5 into a 1.8 Eunos Mk1

Got the chance to buy a complete FM2 kit without electrics from a 1.8 mk2.5, I have a 1.8 Eunos Mk1, does anybody know if it will fit ok? Thanks for any help with this.

The ic piping won't fit, the downpipe won't fit, the manifold and turbo are probably the only things you can reuse. So it totally depends on the cost.

Thanks for the advice, any workaround with the downpipe that anyone knows of. Would probably make it worth a go if I could adapt it as the IC piping can be solved easy enough.

Yeah a full custom exhaust from the downpipe back.

And you still need a complete IC pipe kit & possibly IC on top.

I was hoping I could get away with the exhaust from the exit elbow to the cat and then off the shelf exhaust from there back. Is that not an option ?
