+1 I am quite familiar with the setup, like I said I have two, if you take 1.5" off each than you will effectively gain another 2" of travel upwards.

the line where you said cut is already cut. what i mean is since my intake is 2 pieces, if i leave the second piece off it's like i cut it..that's the way it is now.

it's cheap plastic, you can cut it if you have a utility knife, very carefully score around it, lightly a few times, than wiggle it until it turns white at the cut and starts to break away, carefully! I don't see it affecting the flow all that much, you could alway poke holes in the upper section to curb lower suction.
