There is no way to know whether your cooktop will fit or not without knowing the current model number of the cooktop you are inquiring about for Kitchen Aid, and removing the old downdraft cooktop to measure the cut out hole in the countertop. Then you can know if the unit will work or not. As for the downdraft vent part, the venting will definitely need to be moved or re-routed since every downdraft is slightly different, but that really shouldn't be all that big of an issue at all, you would just need some new venting and possibly some elbows or couplers for the vent and such.
