    You can have whatever size you want depending on the fitting you use. 1/2" MPT x 3/4" barb fitting = 3/4" hose.

    It's not going to make a difference. You can change the pressure/flow rate many different ways. There needs to be a substantial change in one or the other or both in order to notice a difference - good or bad.

    Slap a pressure gauge on right before the IC and change the hoses til you get around 30-35 psi
