Using the space you have 17x17x32 you have a gross volume of 4.24.
I would recommend a vent area of 15.5 x 3 (14.5 sq inches of port per cubic foot) with a length of 25 inches. This will get you a tuning of 35Hz, I can make adjustments if you want a different tuning frequency.
That said, with a woofer displacement of .14 cubic feet and a port displacement of .9 cubic feet your net volume is 3.2 cubic feet. Which may be a bit on the small side, but I do not have any experience with this driver first hand so I can not say how well it will work. Hopefully someone else with more experience can chime in.
If you need this drawn up let me know, but I would get a few other opinions first.
Can you go any larger?

Yes I can go probably 18x18 and yes I'd love a drawing but I don't know which way through port should or sub should be...and when you say 25 inches for the port there's no 90° in that?

Yes, there would be a 90 degree turn if you are pointing the vent towards the rear of the vehicle.
going to 18 x 18 will gain you ~.5 more cubic feet...so right around 3.7 net.

Ya that will work...so the best with the vent facing back...I just don't want to hear a bunch of air moving and I hate the cone noise that's why I'd like the sub facing back
