I re-did my system this year (HF 2 Hp) with a Super Dust Deputy and I’m very impressed with the results. I considered the impeller upgrade but it works so well in my smallish system that I see no need for the expense.
The only reason I’m chiming in is to mention a part I found that helps with the conversion. It is a Woodtek 6” universal mounting ring that costs under $10 and easily converts the HF 5” inlet to 6”.
I mounted the blower directly to the 6” SDD outlet and the SDD directly to an MDF lid that covers the garbage can. The can has a gasket of pipe insulation (works great) and is lifted up against the lid with an air bag and then blocked.
That works well too especially since it doesn’t need to be emptied too often.

Here’s my system and the part.
