I fitted a system from a cav GSi to a Cally XE. Fitted ok. Neeeded to make up a small piece of pipe for the join. You may have problems though with fitting to the ecotec.

the 4x4 exhaust will be routed slightly differently and it's also possible a few of the mount points are different. Should fit with a little work.

IIRC the front pipe (after the downpipe) is different as it has to run about the prop.
