I don't doubt you, I'm just trying to understand why....
While you have the theory right, reality doesnt always match the books.
Theres also a lot of difference due to the filter turbulence in drawthrough vs nice straight tubing in blowthrough
Plus with a higher reynolds number due to higher velocity in drawthrough, the boundary layer will be higher off the tube wall, effectively making the tube even smaller and making the air go even faster.
