Default Question about intakes...

I am going to make my own intake, using the ADTR one as a refrence. One thing I've noticed is that the manrel-bent tubing is 3-inch, and the silicone reducer is a 3.5" to 4"?? Why? Do they not make a 3" to 4" reducer? or will it just not fit?...
Another question:
What are the dimensions on the bent aluminum tubing?
Thanks!

I believe (and Hector can correct me if I am wrong) that the 3" is refering to the I.D. of the pipe. A 3 1/2" reducer is used because it is attached to the outside of the pipe which is 3 1/2" O.D.

No, we use 4" to 3" reducers. Just gotta know where to get them. Sorry, I can't give those dimensions to you. We spend alot of $$$ on R&D to get these intakes just right.
