It translates to a chain that is, um, 110 links long. Whether it's a DID or a different brand.

If you want to alter the torque delivery you can select a rear sprocket that has a few more teeth than the stock sprocket, and if you really wanna alter it, also get a front sprocket that has one or two teeth fewer than the stock front sprocket.

If you do this, buy a chain that is NOT cut to length, and instead get one that's full length, typically 120 links. When you assemble the sprockets and chain onto the bike, use a chain tool, fit the chain up, then cut the chain to the correct length.

If there is a way to calculate how many links the new chain requires when changing sprocket sizes I haven't heard of it; I've just seen people buy them long, and cut them to fit.
