Fitting Gen1 powervalve to 65 plate car

Nige - Any issues with fitting a Gen 1 powervalve system to 65 plate M135i? I think new you'd be selling a Gen 2? Would there need to be any mods to make it work?

I think Gen 1 had two separate rear silencers and two separate bypass valves, left and right. Gen 2 was simplified to a single, larger silencer and with a single valve that bypasses to the right tip only.

Not sure on fitting. But I'd guess the fitment is the same for both?
