Heat duct saddle tee

I added a small bathroom to my house several years ago. I spliced into an existing 6" duct with a 90 degree saddle tee. The problem is I don't get enough air into the new duct. If I remember correctly, I may have put a piece of sheet metal to try to divert flow but I am not sure. Is there any kind of part that will fix this? Thanks.

The only way to fix this is to run a 6" back to the main trunk. 6" is to small to tap into.

Agreed! You cant move more air than the duct can handle. You need a duct just for that one room.
