I did something similar to my 513X2BF. I wanted to keep the bottom port collection as low as possible. So far, it's been very effective with miniscule amounts of sawdust left in the bottom cabinet. No taping as the joints are very tight. The upper port and tubing don't get in the way either as I angled it back towards the bottom port.
