Default Veloster Turbo Hot-pipe undersized

Does anyone have a take on how my hot-pipe from my turbo to the intercooler is necked down from 2.25" to 1.7" and back up to 2.5" could be affecting my boost performance? I'm looking at it and thinking it HAS to be a hindrance. My throttle body is 60mm (2.36") so why would the factory neck down the pipe for like 18" in the middle that leads up to it?

Not sure why you have a 60mm TB on your Veloster. Talk about overkill.

Might help to post a picture. I know on the Neon SRT-4 it is flat on the bottom when it goes between the tranny and the motor. This is due to road clearance.
