Default Stock DP to 3" V-Band... Possible?

So I have my beautiful Artech parts collecting dust in the loft here at work, and was wondering if there are any adapters that could make it possible to mate a 3" V-Band from the exhaust, to the stock downpipe flange?!?! I searched google for about 20 mins last night but found nothing that looked like it would work... I plan on getting my turbo parts on in early 2014, but in the meantime I wouldn't mind having the exhaust on rather than collect dust here at work.

You would probably need an exhaust shop to make an adapter that would probably be a test pipe type thing. And yes it would be very loud and I believe you would loose torque from less back pressure. but mostly it will be like open header status loud (over exaggerated a little). Not worth it IMO
