I have a run nearly identical to what you are describing where I ran 6” PVC all the way and reduced to 4” right at the tool and I am getting in the 850 CFM range with my Clear Vue. This hookup is for a 13” planer and it doesn’t leave any dust or shavings behind.

Oldwest, that is an interesting idea on running a second 4” port. I definitely used to see dust accumulation inside the cabinet on my unisaw with a 1.5 HP DC and a 6” port. But now with a 5 HP system I don’t have any dust accumulating any more, but the approach you describe might require less brute force CFM.
