	I also noticed that my pressure dropped when I installed the 3" 
hose.  I think that since there is less resistance to flow, the pressure 
drops.  With the 3" hose, you get more flow at a lower pressure, IE you 
have a more efficient system, and hence, the same performance (or more) 
with less pressure.
