Just had a thought gents plan on patching broken area with silicone hose. I hope to cut out damaged area from intake and around 90° bend to the straight area. I plan to fit silicone hose. But this will be straight with the relative reducer however will this cause more running issues? As the original pipe is tapered and with the silicone repair there would be more volume?
