    4" Aero Question

    So I drove up to PE and bought the Dayton 4" Outside flares for a friends box, but didn't want to buy the ABS port tubes from them because they are crazy expensive

    Anyway, I've found that PVC doesn't work as it is sized a little differently than the ABS pipe. I figure ABS plumbing pipe would work, but I can't find it anywhere

    anyone know where I can find pipe that will work with the Dayton 4" ports?

    Never used the dayton brand ports, but I know for the precision port models you have to grind the ends down a little bit on store bought PVC pipe so they can fit into the flared ends.

    tried sanding it down with a belt sander, even tried putting slits in the pipe. PVC is just sized a touch larger than the ABS ports

    I need to try and find ABS pipe, but in my area its hard to find. I've heard its easy to find in the south, but not common in the north and midwest

    Lowes sells 10' (I believe?) pieces of thin walled PVC for $7. Use a miter saw and cut some lengths out.

    well with the size of the box we are building the ports will be pretty long so we needed something modular that we could add elbows and such to. I thought the Daytons would work great but apparently not so much
