I thought that the dynamic pressure(velocity sort of) + static pressure(pressure on the walls of the tube) = a constant (temperature related).

Wouldn't the static pressure drop and dynamic pressure increase at a neck-down tube and then go the other way after the restriction, thereby negating the effect of the smaller tube?

All of this is in the laminar flow, low mach number realm.

The energy loss would be more due to the more turbulent boundary layer at the higher gas velocities and the energy required to speed up the air temporarily.

Boost pressure should still be good, though?
