I have a dc2 one here for sale also have one fitted to my ek9 and they are different because of abs pump location Ek9 ones have a removable lid on the top for the filter. Dc2/DB8 filter come out from the back via the intake pipe.

If you have ABS you need the version with the filter entry at the back. They have also been called Version 1 and 2:

So basically if you have a non abs DC2/DB8 you can run the EK Box OR the DC2.

EK abs pump is down the back so you can run either version no matter what?

Think so yes, although the brackets are different I assume.

Not 100% the non ABS version fits an EK9 as the snorkel goes quite far down underneath. Figured OP is fitting to a DC2 from their pic. Someone else may need to tag in regarding EK9 fitment.
