A C20XE will fit into the original locost book chassis so will definately go into a Haynes chassis OK

Normal is getting dressed in clothes that you buy for work and driving through traffic in a
car that you are still paying for - in order to get to the job you need to pay for the clothes
and the car, and the house you leave vacant all day so you can afford to live in it.

And mine - Its a snug fit, but the ground clearance with a chopped down sump is only 2.75 inches.... Dry sump would be better, but meggabucks....
