    It's the correct method, honestly you could measure either way and wouldn't notice a difference...

    Re: tuning flared ports

    So they're flared on both ends? Are they the "Precision Port" tubes?

    Mine came with instructions ... basically took my port length (7"), subtracted 5" ... cut a piece of pipe 2" long, glued it together ... instructions said it would be 1" longer than your port length so I measured the final product and what would you know, it wound up being 8"

    friggin things are way wider then I expected. I was gonna have rear shooting ports but I dont have the room with these monsters so they are gonna be top shooting ports now.
