Default Sirio .18 oversized Nitro Engine size question

Can someone help me to find out how much bigger (not HP or torque) in the engine's phyical size compare to those on-road 12 engine like HPI Nova Rossi RB or OS....? Someone from our track want to know can he drop that engine without modifying on a typical 200m onroad like NTC3 or Serpent....? Thanks in advance.

I believe you can mount the block in a TC with no problem. However, the exhaust is set up for a Traxxas 2.5 header, which is smaller than a standatd header. You could use the header for a 4Tec, but you'd have to fit some more gaskets to use on a NTC3
