V-band turbo inlet question

I’ve had this v-band hot side for about three years sitting on a shelf. Have not had a chance to get this apart and set next to each other till now.
I have a new to me set of b&b headers with heat and am going to install them but before I install them I wanted to see if this mod would be a worthwhile mod but I’m leaning away from it. It looks like my headers would need larger modifications in order to be able to use this hot side. It’s one thing to cut and weld this new flange on and another for it to actually fit and be worthwhile. The t3 flange is smaller/more compact and this v-band flange is two 2”-2”25” pipes next together best case. Looks like the headers would best be cut way back to past the wastegate merge in order to make it work correctly.
I just want some opinions wether I’m right and also wether it might be worth it. I won’t be welding this, I know my limits.

I guess I’d have to find a race shop with really good welding skills.
Obviously things are tight back there for a gt35r and any changes might make it worse! So this is why I’m actually leaning away from even attempting this.
Why would I want to do it? It’s cool looking. And it might make a smoother flowing exhaust flow into the turbo. It might actually make a difference to performance.
What do you think?
Turbo powa!
