p.*. i have the 6" to 3 1/2" air ram, i would have gone with the 4" outlet but my 3 1/2" pipe is only 4.25" long.
Not exactly. The air will have to flow at 4...3.75...3.5....3 for a while before the maf. The velocity should increase but not as much as if it was transistioned sooner with more of a bell mouth. The main point of this is to smooth out the beggining boundary layer in the mouth of the pipe. Then the flow will have the maximum velocity in the correct diameter.
