Yup 4" fit nicely in a 2x4 wall until you want to dry wall the back side.

I think that boot needs dimensions written on it, before we can make assumptions on if it'd fit. I am able to get all sorts of sizes of oval, as I'm currently working with 42/20, 44/22 and 16/8.

I am sure they are available but they just don't seem to be where I live.

Not sure if I can raise it that high without cutting the stack shorter: the duct work in the attic is in sort of fixed spot (I have to double check on that).

I am also trying to depict how it is going to look asthetically. And it it looks better raises, I probably will go with it.

Yep, that is an option too. Probably the easy way around!
