look buy a large bohemian glass from mya or HC and put your stem on it. the bigger glass alows more smoke to be drawn in to the base and allows the smoke to cool in between hits. stem wise longer isnt always better. sitck to the 26-32" range.

if you get the small phunnel you might not even want to get the mod. i ordered 2 smalls, one for me and one for the girl to take with her hookah, and the mod stuck out 1/8" in both of them. my advice is to use the aluminum cup from a tea light. they fit perfectly. both smalls i have are exactly 3" in diameter measuring the outer edge of the bowl

I have found that longer stems ( 26" is the minimum i'd consider buying) give cooler smoke and give more flavourful as a result. I would suggest that the ideal lenght in terms of smoke quality is somewhere between 32" and 36" and anything much larger is likely to have a harder draw. Beyond that I recall reading in some medical journal that the taller narghiles have lower CO content which seems true as anecdotal and personal experience has shown me that you have a far less chance of getting light-headed/sick when smoking from a full sized narghile rather then a smaller one.
