Tbone: From the bottom of the skimmer to the top of the 90 degree is about 11 1/4''. And you have 2'' in between the down pipe and the up pipe at the narrowest point (where the gate valve is). Also the pieces are slip fitted and glued.
Thanks a lot! Looks like it will be a tough mod with those distances and the fact that the pieces are glued. My planned baffle height for the fuge is 17", and the distance between the skimmer section and fuge is 3"

If I were to mod the up-pipe by replacing it with a longer piece, and I added a short, horizontal piece before the 90-degree, would that affect the skimmer's performance?
