    What headers will fit a Pentacarbon slip on

    I currently have a Brock's Penta carbon slip-on exhaust and I'm thinking about getting some upgraded headers. Does anybody know if the akrapovic headers would work with the Brock's slip on? I spent a lot of money on the slip-on, so would like to keep using it if I can and avoid having to pay for a full system.

    Good to hear, looks like both those exhaust typically use a gasket before sliding on. The Brock's slides directly over the midpipe. So the outer diameter would need to be the same as OEM. Do you still use a gasket when installing the slip-on exhaust on the Akra headers?

    I could be mistaken though, do those other slip-ons slide directly onto the pipe or do they use the metal gasket as well? Hard for me to tell from the instructions.

    Call Brockís and they will help you! Iím sure someone here has used an Akrapovic with slip on from Brockís.

    I reached out to both Brock's, who told me I would need to purchase their full exhaust system and they were unable to confirm compatibility of the slip-on with other aftermarket parts, and Akropovic, who didn't give me a clear answer either but said that it might fit as their pipes are designed to be the same as OEM when attaching a slip on. Worst case scenario I can just throw back on the stock muffler or run it straight pipe for a bit, if the pentacarbon doesn't work and I need to buy something else.

    Iím almost positive that it will work. Brockís just wants you to buy their header! Lol itís OEM size and so is the Akrapovic header! 👍💪🔥

    The Pentacarbon doesn't have a mid pipe, it slips on a pipe which needs to be pointing straight back, the stock exhaust and the Akropovic both exit angled out.
    The Brocks system turns to the back and the Pentacarbon slips on it.
