Installation was a huge pain. It's a heat-soak nightmare and I've had nothing but trouble trying to tune it without an IMRC. I do have it tuned, but only by having that IMRC wired in and not connected to the IM. I do feel it flows much better, and I like the delivery of the water/meth I set up.
At any rate, it's on now and I'll work around the issues. I have some 1/8" sheet silicone to try and make a gasket/spacer to keep down the heat. I also have a bunch of reflective heat tape to help.

Fast is relative, and my new Focus isn't and never will be "fast" to me.
I just didn't buy this car for speed.

sutyak It's been a few months, so I figure I'll share my non-progress. I haven't touched the car in a few months. It runs very well except I'm still fighting the IMRC delete issues. My solution of physically removing the IMRC but leaving the flag set to "1" (enabled) in the computer eventually threw a code saying the IMRC wasn't functioning, and my tune went to crap again.
To get around that issue, the IMRC is wired/hosed in, just not actually attached to the IM. So far I'm wishing I would have not gone with that Cossie style manifold. Overall though I'm quite happy with the build.
I'm not sure 2013 will result in a built motor at the moment. Instead I'm looking to put money into the house instead of the car.

Hughesy27 Glad to hear all is well just seeing if anything new happened. Hopefully you or one of us on here find something to use in between the I.M.

Nothing going on at the moment. I still need to work on an insulator between the head and manifold, and also wrap the back and underside in reflective heat tape.

I did get a code thrown from removing the IMRC and leaving the flag set to o"1" in the tune. Out of frustration I just removed the IMRC from the stock intake and wired it up! I was in a rush and driving over 300 miles on-way so that's where it sits now. I have a couple lean spots in the tune, but none in WOT.
Right now it is set at 10-11psi, overall running fine and the meth injection is also fine. I need to get my slicks mounted and try to hit the track once this year before they close.

I have no more build plans for 2012 other than gathering parts for 2013. I still need rods, bearings, clutch/flywheel and diff. I'll play with the tune a bit more but that's all.

I do have a full set of poly suspension bushings I need to install at some point. I just hate messing with the pos rusted bolts on the rear suspension.
