Yes it's a BE box, Engine will fit the 306 but you might get the reverse of fitting the Iron block engine in the 205 with subframe clearance issue's with the exhaust

do you mean their will not be enough space? what does the standard manifold look like? is it a cast iron tiem? should be able to sort a cat out as i have one already and i am getting a custom exhaust made for it

i mean as far as im aware the alloy mi16 never came with a cat so can not run properly with one in place.

mite be wrong but worth looking into.

 

but for a 306 id go gti-6 any way

If your fitting an engine from a pre-cat car and you have evidence of it you will not need to have a cat emissions test for the mot :).

The engine's run fine with a CAT, just need a ECU mapped to suit, But as said if you can prove the age of the engine there is no need for a CAT

The manifold is a 8 branch steel one, not cast as on most car's, The only way to see if it will fit is try it
