Default Can a zen header (FFE) be fitted to an esteem?

Hi guys, need urgent advice. I am told that a complete zen FFE from header to end piece can be fitted to an esteem. Is it possible considering the length and cc difference?

A friend says he has done it earlier with an Automech unit, he now has one made by Raj. I am just considering picking it up because I will save some money buying it 2nd hand. Or should I just get a new one made from Raj as I am in Bangalore?

Thanks in advance

I tried to fit the mpfi esteem FFE to mpfi zen. But modifying it is almost the same as making a new one. Though the manifold of mpfi zen and mpfi esteem are same, the piping design from manifold to catholic converter is different. Also the zen has the muffler can in the center where as the esteem has it at the end. So the piping has to be done completely new.

that was hilarious dude

a zen has a 1 L engine and an esteem has a 1.3 L engine, i doubt the headers would fit.

Besides even if it does fit, its effect will not be the same as it has on the esteem [again this is conjecture]
