TPI oval needs 4 inch id hose. You could get a 4" to 3.5" hump coupler to isolate the vibration and allow you to bend. Use a aluminum tube squished down or fab stainless as
TT suggests then a 45* coupler to where ever....

DR Gas sells steel oval pipe and transitions

Boost Controller has hump hoses and reducers....
