    3" seems the only way to go these days. Made a 3" downpipe for a mk4 which had a BAM k04 turbo and that worked really well.

    If your getting a custom made downpipe, weld in a O2 sensor bung anyway. Gives you the option to use or loose the 2nd O2 sensor. If it's not required then you just plug it, easily removable if you change your mind or sell the downpipe. Plus the parts just a few £'s!
