Default XTM 18 in RS4??

Would an XTM 18 fit easily into the RS4 EVO?? Reason I ask is because this enginge would be free to me if it fits, but if its too much work its not worth it. Its the version that comes stock in the XTM X-cellerator. Thank you.

Looks like the XTM should fit perfectly then... know of a good "cheap" header for that engine, [link=http://www.hobbypeople.net/gallery/146002.asp]XTM Engine[/link] . Remember I am only doing this because my t-15 is dead, and this engine seems to run strong in the x-cel, and is free to me. Thank you for the help!!
