Link pipe L-B10E1 does NOT fit HP4

Well, I was told it would fit, but it doesn't. The bends to the collector pipes are straight on the OEM link pipe, but angled just slightly out on the L-B10E1. It does not fit. I am going to verify if the Collector Set C-B10E1 rectifies this issue.

Looks like the collector pipe option won't work either. My collector pipes have O2 sensors and bungs, looks like the aftermarket has them in the exhaust headers? I am going to give up at this point. Looks like there is no easy way to delete the cat and flapper section.

thanks for the info! The link pipe from the HP Race parts would probaly be the solution if that section is available as the header and secondary collector looks just like the HP4's. I wonder if anybody has the part number for for this piece?

That F-ing sucks. This would have been so much cheaper than getting another system. I'm surprised they came up with a completely new exhaust system for these lower volume HP4's. I started to get worried when someone posted the headers are different shape. Thanks for trying Airbag.

Well, I found a part number from the BMW WebEPC for the link pipe in the HP Race exhaust, it's a BMW part# though, not an Akropovic part#.

You beat me to it! Though I wonder if a dealership parts dept could order the part alone.

I'm glad we came up with the same P/N. I'll ask my dealer tomorrow & you ask yours. Will see if we get the same answers & prices.
All is not lost yet!
