1.7 TD Isuzu engined vans with smaller gearboxes have odd driveshafts, in that it has a small gearbox end and a big hub end, so you can have a small gearbox, and run GSi struts (brakes etc) without changing for an F20 etc.

Not sure if F18 and F16 use the same driveshafts, I don't think they do. That's the only problem, as it'll go straight onto the block no problem.
