This looks very interesting, are you going to have 2 semi-circle outlets or a single converged outlet.

This is reverse ducting.
The 2 exit inlet join back to one circle and one single mylar pipe go straight back.

This will be cool to watch. When you get it to work, a MB-339 would be nice to see next.
