OK I had some plans made that included four 6" aeroports. Since each one is $50 that would equal to $200 for ports, I dont got that kind of money for ports. I was wondering if I could just go with eight 3" aeroports and get the same tunning and every thing as I would with four 6" ports?

I did this and came up with the same answers:
Pipe: 6" x 10" (long) x 4 (quanity)= 240
Pipe: 3" x 10" (long) x 8 (quanity)= 240


Would it be the same thing??

Only difference in the flared end.Thats what I thought and said but people said its not the same. They told me to do some thing to the PVC pipe to make it into a flare end.

or u could just switch to 4 inch tubes recalculate the tuning for 4" instead of 6" go to partsexpress website they have everything u need to make your own flared end tubes or u could just buy the aeroport knock offs they have will cost u $50 per 4 ($12.50 each)tubes and are 4"x 17" if u wanted/needed 8 ports cost will be $100+s/h
just type "port" in the quick search box they are on the second page

Im most likely going to place an order with partexpress this weekend for 8 of those 4" aeroports. I know I won't have time to make my own flares and go out and get some pvc pipe before the show that is next sunday. My only other choice would be going back to square ports.

Bump...

What should I do?? Buy the flares from partsexpress or try and make my own. Problem making my own is that we don't know if they will come out perfect and I have to find time to make them before next Sunday.

Buy Eight 4" Aeroports from partsexpress- $100
Make my own four 6" Flare end PVC pipes- $80 ( have to buy heat gun and all the things needed)

Just buy the aeros from patsexpress. You wouldnt be saving much by doing them yourself in this case and your not even sure youll be able to do it.
