Default V-Band size turbo downpipe?

I have a 2011 and I am thinking of making my own downpipe just because I am not all that impressed with the aftermarket options and quality for the price they are wanting.
Does anyone know the size of the v-band off the turbo? Making sure I buy the right stuff before I start tearing it apart.

2011 Golf if that matters

Thanks!

It's metric obviously. The outside diameter of the turbo flange is 78 mm. The inside is 55 mm. Looks like a 2.5" 78mm dia v band flange would work.

Thank you for the info, I am trying to gather as much info as possible before I start hacking up my dpf. I will probably just reuse what I have to save on cost.

I thought I seen somewhere that the current Malone tunes now only requires one bung in the down-pipe, is that correct? I really do not want to weld any more than I have to.

You could probably sell the unhacked dpf for a couple hundred bucks if it's still good. The weld on flange is $20-30 plus maybe another 20 for the O2 sensor bung- which yes, should be the only bung needed.

My DPF has a good amount of miles on it but still works, not sure how much life is left in it, car has 121k miles.
Does anyone know if this DP is compatible with the 2.0? The curves look very similar to the buzzken delete
Even with shipping its still cheaper then buying a new buzzken and the quality look much better

I bought this one today. The quality looks excellent and the price was right even with shipping. https://www.darksidedevelopments.co....and-cr170.html

I was originally going to build one but it was just easier to buy when I found a product I liked.
