Dc2 will not fit at all, the box itself and piping is much longer than a Ek9 one. EK9 or EG6 fitment one is the only option for a hatch unless you are willing to cut it up and remake the whole dc2 box 3-4" shorter.

Does your one off the dc2 fit your ek9? Top one certainly looks like ek9. The dc2 one will have a larger 2.5"gasket flange for the larger mugen dc2 center section.

Ek9 and eg6 twinloops are not the same.

Ek4/eg6 twinloop is designed to fit oem type b pipes, the ek9 twinloop has larger pipe and flange and is designed to fit the mugen b pipe

You sure the DC2 one fits? Was nowhere near able to fit on an EG6, was not enough room at all between ARB, hooks and bumper. The whole box is 3-4" longer than the hatch one. Can you post a picture of it on?

Also I don't quite understand your question. "Which is better?" Which ever fits best.

Didn't realise the Ek9 ones were made with 2.5" collector as well to go with Mugen center, makes sense though. I do recall the EG6/Ek4 ones having 2" collector to fit stock system and 57mm OD piping instead of the 61mm OD on the DC2 ones, would expect the EK9 specific ones to have same as DC2. I will have to keep an eye out for a complete Ek9 Mugen system.

Maybe the ek9 one will fit better on the bumper cut for the exhaust tip....on that photo the tip isn't perfectly fitted like we should expect from mugen.....if you can buy an ek9 one go for it, buy the specific one for your car.........

IMO there seems to be custom work going on there... Most of the dc2/eg6 parts will fit or integrate each other as they share roughly the same chassis.. usually DC2 back boxes are bigger and longer but can be made to fit with custom work.. a friend of mine bought a spoon N1 off a ep3 and had it custom fitted to his Jordan.. Im sure that eg6/dc2/ek B-pipes are all the same its just the back box that's different.
