I am installing a 07' cup 255 engine/ supercharger/ ECU etc into my NA 06 Exige.
The charcoal canister from my 06' is different from the 07' 255 cup. Besides the way they look (one is a rectangular shape and the other one a cylinder), is there any benefit of using the cylindrical one that came with the 07'? Or is my stock canister just fine.

I just realized why they are different while installing the new engine. Does anyone have pictures of where the canister is located and how is being hold? The 06' canister not longer fit in the same place so I will have to use the cylindrical one. Thanks.

The service notes say this:

Supercharged models also differ from standard Exige in the following respects:
# Engine dipstick tube altered to avoid supercharger.
# Crankcase breather pipe altered to avoid supercharger.
# Relays on engine bulkhead move to avoid supercharger by-pass capsule
# Charcoal canister moved from bulkhead to bracket on top of chassis right hand rear upright member to avoid alternator.

Cheers.

Thanks for the info. The first 3 things you mentioned I have no problems with since I am using the engine that came with supercharger, but the canister that I received with engine was different than the one I already had. I am just trying to figure out how to attach it to the car. Also the size of the hose coming out of the old canister that goes to the gas tank is bigger than the cylindrical one, so I will have to find a way how to attach it. Also there is a cable that goes to the canister close valve in my N/A but the cylindrical canister doesn't have a canister close valve, just a hose, therefore I don't know what to do with the cable. Any ideas?
