It needs to drop to 3 inch to fit onto distribution head inlet
This was the trouble with mine, a reducer had been made half way down the line as the mushroom was 100mm. In the end I had to buy the pipe and Venturi to convert the hopper system from 110mm to 100mm. I think you’ll find you need the same size pipe from your Venturi to your distribution head.

When I made a Venturi for my front hopper, the biggest thing I learnt is do not drop the size of the pipe after the Venturi. You can do whatever you want before but after will slow the air down a second time and mess the flow all up. Your better off modifying your distribution head to accept a larger pipe, so long as it's got enough outlets to not cause a restriction that is.
