What is this call on a DC?

I am trying to upgrade my DC to start with a 6" outlet from the dual 4" on there now. What is that black piece called and where can I find a 6" version or even a 6" and 4" split? I have looked around and have not seen anything that looks like that.

Drew have you tried removing the "Y" fitting and seeing what is under there?  Mine is a little different in design but if I remove the "Y" fitting there is a six inch fitting under it.

Have you looked in the manual to see what it is called?

It looks to me in the first picture you posted that there are 6-8 screws holding the inlet ports on to the Impeller cover (F in your first manual picture).

I am guessing that when you remove the Inlet Port the hole in you Impeller cover will be 6 inches in diameter.

I am not sure you would gain much by running just a short section of 6 inch and then going right back down to 4 inch flex.  6 inch is going to give you benefits when you do it in longer runs.

ah ... sorry for the confusion ... The 6" will always be 6", just with a flexi hose for now. The 4" will be another flexi hose that I currently have running to my TS, jointer, planer. So I will have 2 runs
