What kind of connection are you asking about? Electrical, vacuum, gasoline, 
intake, heated air?

Large diameters are usually only sold in rolls of 50' or so. There's no reason 
to buy shrink tubing with large shrinkage rations unless you need to cover 
something that has large ratios of finished diameters, ie something lumpy. 
The large ratio stuff is more expensive by far.
