Can Akrapovic xpipe bolt on to Dinan rear section?

Does anyone know if the fitment will work if you take the Akrapovic midpipe (and HFC's) and try to mount it up to a Dinan rear section?

I don't believe Akra sells their midpipe as a standalone product (you have to buy their "evolution" system that includes the mufflers), so I'm curious if their xpipe will bolt right on to other aftermarket exhausts, such as Dinan's which includes the connecting pipe.

We offer a special adapter for the Akrapovic X-pipe so that you can bolt it up to any OEM or aftermarket system. The X-pipe without the adapters will not work on its own.

Photos can be found here-

how much are the adaptors? The link you provided above just took me to a pic of the xpipe for sale.

Also, it appears the overall design of the Akrapovic is quite a bit different than other aftermarket xpipe manufacturers. It looks like the primary cat on the Akra is basically at the end of the xpipe itself, correct? Whereas the OEM primary cat is coming right off the headers. (quite a bit closer to the engine)

Does the Akrapovic xpipe come with the extensions to hook up to the headers like the others do (Fabspeed's HFC set up for example)?

I added the link to show you photos of the adapter. The Akrapovic X-pipe option does come with bolt-on pipes that bolt direct to the headers.

Thanks CashOnly...good to know that they were sold with the system...so someone selling their used system should have them (assuming they didn't throw them out).
