Euro exhaust on 78 American 450SEL

I'm hoping someone can help me with this. The exhaust on my 78 450SEL is getting a little loud and I want to replace it. I would like to dump the cats, so I need to replace it from the exhaust manifolds back. I found an exhaust system at Timevalve that is sold for Euro models 1973 on. Is there any reason why this wouldn't fit on my car?

I'd appreciate any help in this matter.

At the very least, you'll find that the flanges on the front pipes are different, but you may be able to mount the system with a little creative welding.
