    4 inch is a bit large.

    try 3. and remove the battery, and move it over as far as it can go

    I tried 3" ducting to my Jetex filter and I really cant see any benefit of it. The car will perform just as well without it so I removed it.

    Sorry mate I wasn't trying to pee on your parade. Try it by all means but a few guys here have tried it and it doesn't make too much difference on a forced induction car. The old N/A cars love it though.
