I know that everyone recommends the 6” ports and cutting into a shiny machine.

With these larger DC, it may not be needed as you can pull a lot of cfm with the 4” port. With my 5 hp DC and 4” port, I am getting 670 cfm and enough to do a very good job. Would a 6” port do more? Of course, but would not make a difference in dust collection.

Grab a beverage and do some reading, it wouldn’t make much if any difference in chip collection. For fine dust collection you need more cam than a 4” port is capable of.
