ive read on here that people take regular pvc and make it a flared aero port by heating it up??? what else do you do? does anyone have some pics of the steps id be taking?

I've seen people use the back of a bowl to flare it once it's heated.

I've never tried it, but I've seen people do it with a heat gun and a metal bowl. Seems pretty simple - heat it up quite a bit, and press it down on the bowl to start stretching it while applying more heat. It would probably be a lot easier if you have someone heating it up while you pressed down on the bowl.. You could probably use a ceramic bowl as well.

that kinda just seems like it would make the opening bigger??? what gives it the lip? maybe im just missing something? i plan to use 6' pvc but ive read the flared aero is what makes a big difference...

you could use pvc, attatch it to the side wall, and use a roundover bit on the opening of the wall
